Supporting Countries to Manage the Cost of Disaster and Climate Shocks

December 21, 2016

The Disaster Risk Financing & Insurance Program leads the dialogue on financial resilience as a component of the WBG’s support to vulnerable countries on better managing disasters and climate shocks. The initiative supports governments to implement comprehensive financial protection strategies, and brings together sovereign disaster risk financing, agricultural insurance, property catastrophe risk insurance, and scalable social protection programs. Often, it also helps governments work with the private sector to facilitate public-private partnerships.
