Urban Resilience in the GFDRR Portfolio (English)

The importance of strengthening the resilience of cities is more critical than ever, as unprecedented urbanization is transforming the planet. The global facility for disaster reduction and recovery (GFDRR) is a major supporter of urban resilience globally, through the provision and funding of technical assistance, research and analytics, knowledge management, and partnership building. GFDRR provides urban resilience-related technical and financial support across all regions served by the World Bank Group and has been able to inform lending operations, provide policy guidance, and leverage financing for urban resilience programs from International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and International Development Association (IDA) resources. This brief note provides a snapshot of the findings of the review and highlights select GFDRR engagements which are illustrative of the facility’s work in urban resilience.
