This framework is intended to help finance ministries and other governmental authorities in developing more effective disaster risk management strategies and, in particular, financial strategies, building on strengthened risk assessment and risk financing. While the framework does not specifically explore disaster risk reduction policies, it highlights the strong interconnections between disaster risk assessment, risk reduction and financial management, key building blocks for dynamic and continually evolving disaster risk management strategies.
The framework has been developed as a response to a mandate from G20 Leaders, Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors. It was endorsed at the G20 meeting in Mexico City on 4-5 November 2012.
