This Facility has been approved by the World Bank’s Board for fi nancial assistance from the Development Grants Facility (DGF) in FY 07. This paper will be regularly updated based on feedback and suggestions from the World Bank’s partners and clients to enhance the impact of the Facility’s interventions in low and middle-income countries prone to disaster risks.
