Global Crisis Risk Platform (English)

This paper fulfills a commitment Management made to Executive Directors in September 2016 to further develop and operationalize the platform—now renamed the Global Crisis Risk Platform (GCRP). This paper has benefited from extensive consultations with, and guidance from, a wide range of teams across the WBG, including Regions, country management units (CMUs), Global Practices (GPs), Global Themes (GTs), corporate units, and shareholders, as well as external partners. Informed by these discussions, the paper seeks to synthesize, draw from, and build on the vast experience and capacity the WBG and the global community have amassed in crisis risk management. A consistent theme of the consultations is the need for the Bank’s crisis management efforts to place much greater emphasis on prevention, when crisis risks can be mitigated, and preparedness, when they cannot be significantly mitigated. This “pivot to preparedness and prevention” represents a central tenet of the GCRP.
