Invest to prevent disaster

2005 United Nations World disaster reduction campaign

Microfinance is a tool that has successfully been utilized to improve livelihood options and reduce poverty. It has, however, rarely been used as a tool for reducing risk vulnerability to natural hazards. Leading up to the International Day for Disaster reduction (12 October 2005), the ISDR secretariat has promoted dialogue with the microfinance community regarding the possibility of using these tools to reduce disaster risk and increase community resilience to disasters.
