Communique of ministers of finance and Central Bank governors of the G20

A communique in which ministers of finance and Central Bank governors of the G20 recognize that disaster risk financing policies are necessary for an overall Disaster Risk Management (DRM) strategy, and appreciate and welcome the combined efforts made by the World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), with the support of the United Nations, to broaden the participation in the discussion on DRM by highlighting the central role that financial policy-makers play to support other areas of Government and civil society in dealing with disasters.

They welcome the G20/OECD voluntary framework for disaster risk assessment and risk financing which provides a detailed guideline that aims to facilitate the implementation of more effective DRM strategies and encourage further efforts by the World Bank and OECD in cooperation with other relevant international organizations to leverage the voluntary framework in order to address remaining challenges.
