Natural disasters increasingly threaten development objectives, which places climate and disaster resilience firmly on the global development agenda. With the world’s poorest countries receiving less than 20 percent of the development financing for disaster risk, a core part of that effort will be to establish adequate and easily accessible funding options to build resilience in poor and vulnerable countries.
On Friday, October 10, development leaders will meet in Washington, D.C., for the seventh Resilience Dialogue. The event will explore emerging and innovative financing strategies for the implementation of disaster and climate resilience programs.
The Resilience Dialogue series is co-hosted by the European Union, the Government of Japan, USAID, and the World Bank Group.
