Disaster risk management : building a safe and resilient future for all (English)

The World Bank has emerged as a leading partner of disaster-prone countries in their efforts to manage the risk of disasters, and respond to their impacts when they hit. Investments are helping to safeguard growth in sectors like urban, water, transport, agriculture and rural development, and protect millions from the loss of lives and livelihoods in disasters. To leverage new investment, generate knowledge and expertise, and build a global partnership for disaster risk management (DRM), the global facility for disaster reduction and recovery (GFDRR) was established in 2006. As a World Bank-hosted facility, GFDRR provides grant financing and offers a range of analytical and advisory services that are directly impacting on the ability of high-risk, low income countries to understand and act on the hazards they face, helping them adapt to a changing climate.
