Financing for Disaster Risk Reduction and a Risk Informed Approach to Investing Across the SDGs

This interactive event at the 2021 UN Financing for Development Forum was co-hosted by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs, and the Co-Chairs of the Group of Friends for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The side event brought together a variety of development finance practitioners, including from Governments, development cooperation agencies, international financial institutions (IFIs) and the private sector, to engage on a comprehensive approach to financing disaster risk reduction (DRR) that is responsive to country needs, particularly in the time of COVID-19.  More on the meeting can be found here.
