This event is co-hosted by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs Development Cooperation Team, and the Co-Chairs of the Group of Friends for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The side event will bring together a variety of development finance practitioners, including from Governments, development cooperation agencies, IFIs and the private sector, to engage on a comprehensive approach to financing disaster risk reduction that is responsive to country needs, particularly in the time of COVID-19. Practitioners will identify the unique roles each sector will play in developing this approach, and identify recommendations on a way forward, including on the implementation of national DRR financing strategies and resilient investment. Discussions will draw on insights from the 2021 Financing for Sustainable Development Report, recent and upcoming UNDRR reports on risk-informed investing and reducing risk and building resilience of SMEs, and DCF analytical work.
