360° Resilience : A Guide to Prepare the Caribbean for a New Generation of Shocks – Disaster Risk Financing in the Caribbean Region : Framework and Assessments (Inglês)

The Caribbean disaster risk financing (DRF) framework of the World Bank has been collaboratively designed in partnerships with Caribbean Governments and local and international stakeholders. The framework helps consolidate and preserve physical disaster risk reduction measures in countries by limiting the residual fiscal impacts, caused by the materialization of public contingent liabilities in the wake of a disaster. This framework is built around best international practices and experiences drawn from other regions, but tailored to Caribbean countries’ specific risk profiles, needs, and country priorities. A comprehensive DRF strategy helps alleviate the financial burden of disaster response and, ultimately, ensure the sustainability of public finances. A first step in devising a comprehensive DRF strategy is better understanding what is at risk on the side of the government, and therefore quantifying the levels of contingent liabilities, direct, and indirect, that public entities are facing. Having a centralized and well-maintained database of hazard impacts, as well as their corresponding economic impacts along with a way to track and report on post-disaster expenditures is key to understand the true costs of natural hazards.
