Partners and Donors

This website is financed by the European Union (EU) in the framework of the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP-EU) Natural Disaster Risk Reduction Program, managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). The program supports disaster risk management and climate change adaptation activities in ACP countries through technical assistance, capacity building and advisory/analytical work. The program also supports ACP countries in the aftermath of a disaster with post disaster assessments, rapid-response technical assistance, capacity building and the development of sustainable recovery frameworks. GFDRR is a global partnership, managed by the World Bank and funded by 25 donor partners, to help high-risk, low-capacity developing countries better understand and reduce their vulnerabilities to natural hazards and adapt to climate change. Working with over 400 partners—mostly government agencies, civil society, and technical organizations—GFDRR provides grant financing, on-the-ground technical assistance to mainstream disaster mitigation policies into country-level strategies, and a range of training and knowledge sharing activities.
