The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a partnership of the International
Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) system to support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework
for Action (HFA). The partnership is managed by the World Bank on behalf of the
participating donor partners and other partnering stakeholders.
GFDRR provides technical and financial assistance to high risk low- and middle-income countries to
mainstream disaster reduction in national development strategies and plans to achieve the Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs). GFDRR's Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction in Development (Track-II)
provides technical and financial assistance to low and middle income countries to mainstream disaster
risk reduction into their country assistance and poverty reduction strategies. Climate Change
adaptation is one of the key areas of intervention under this track.
GFDRR currently finances 20 projects that help countries better adapt to the challenges that climate
change poses. These projects support activities such as the development of probabilistic risk
assessment platforms, the creation of disaster risk atlases, and the establishment / improvement of
loss model tools.
