International Financial Institutions
Financing risk-sensitive development
International Financial Institutions play a key role in supporting disaster risk reduction to achieve sustainable development and poverty reduction.
UNISDR works with International Financial Institutions to promote investments in disaster risk reduction that include areas of disaster recovery, education, health, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, and environmental and natural resource management.
UNISDR partners in particular with the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR - hosted in the World Bank) to support developing countries to reduce their risks.
UNISDR and GFDRR collaborates on several initiatives and partnerships to implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction including the Global Assessment Reports; the implementation of the UN Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience; country risk profiles; resilient recovery and reconstruction (for example the International Recovery Platform – IRP); urban resilience; and the Worldwide Initiative for Safe Schools.
