Insuring against natural disaster risk in Mexico: case study

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This case study is part of World Bank Treasury's financial solutions in practice series. It introduces Mexico government's initiatives, which allowed the country to move from an ex-post response to natural disasters to an ex-ante preparedness approach, through: (i) the fund for natural disasters, to which it transfers budgetary funds for disaster relief and reconstruction efforts; and (ii) an institutional framework for disaster preparedness involving risk assessment, risk reduction, the promotion of a culture of prevention, and insurance.

The paper also features Mexican sub-national governments achievements in securing low-cost local currency financing from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), and eliminating currency risk for themselves, the domestic development bank, and the federal government.
