The Roles of World Bank Tokyo DRM Hub

The World Bank Tokyo DRM Hub is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Program and actively connects Japanese expertise and knowledge in disaster resilience, quality infrastructure, and sustainable urban development with resilience programs and initiatives. It also collaborates with other Japan-supported programs such as the Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC), the Quality Infrastructure and Investment (QII) Trust Fund, and the Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF) to maximize efforts and scale support to resilient infrastructure investments.

In addition, the World Bank Tokyo DRM Hub acts as the Program’s facilitator of DRM expertise, knowledge, and technology solutions needed to help developing countries build resilience to disaster and climate risk. The World Bank Tokyo DRM Hub: (i) provides project preparation and operational support to World Bank task teams; (ii) supports the deployment of Japanese and global DRM experts to developing countries; (iii) disseminates knowledge and lessons learned from projects; and (iv) is responsible for the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the Program.

Supported by the World Bank Tokyo DRM Hub, nearly three-quarters of the Program’s active projects draw on Japanese expertise in DRM.
