Focusing on poverty: Reducing vulnerability with disaster risk financing

Source(s):  Centre for Disaster Protection

Document sets out some questions that can be examined during programme design to help ensure that disaster risk financing (DRF) optimises its potential to benefit poor households. We detail some of the sources of data that can be used to help answer these questions—and also where data gaps are most likely.

Disasters have the biggest impact on those that are least able to protect themselves from them: vulnerable people. In most cases the most vulnerable are also the poorest in a society. Better protecting vulnerable people against disasters affords them with the chance to move and stay out of poverty. By securing a timely, pre-agreed payment to governments and organisations in low- and middleincome countries in the aftermath of a disaster, disaster risk financing (DRF) has a powerful potential to protect poor households. 

Find here the main questions to be adressed in the document:

  1. What are the priority risks for poor households?
  2. What services and markets do the poor rely on?
