Improving the assessment of disaster risks to strengthen financial resilience

Source(s):  Mexico - government
World Bank, the (WB)

This document is a special joint G20 publication by the Government of Mexico and the World Bank, designed to address how governments are developing more active approaches to disaster risk management. It encourages countries to gain more access to accurate risk information, and to assess and integrate risk into decision-making and development planning. This document informs countries about how risk management is also useful to develop risk financing strategies that allow countries to increase their response capacity after disasters, while protecting their fiscal balance. Responding to a G20 request, this joint publication brings together the experiences of G20 and developing countries in strengthening financial resilience to protect their populations and assets.

This publication includes a joint paper by the UNISDR Regional Office for the Americas collaborated and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on public investment and DRR called, “Making Public Investment Work for Disaster Risk Management." This paper can be viewed in chapter 9 of the publication.
