Guidance notes for highly effective Disaster Risk Financing

At the Centre for Disaster Protection, we spend a lot of time considering what ‘good’ disaster risk financing (DRF) looks like in practice. Some habits have been more neglected than others, and we have released a range of guidance notes for the most overlooked. These aim to provide very practical...

Just add water: a landscape analysis of climate finance for water

This landscape analysis of climate finance for water programmes will help us establish where donors and national governments need to consider re-prioritising climate investment, and look at what barriers we need to break through to unlock much-needed investment. The findings in the report...

Scenario-based risk analytics for managing cascading disasters

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that biological and natural hazards intersect with each other and increase the complexity of overall disaster impacts on populations and economies. But disaster management and risk analytics have been slow to capture the intersections of natural and...
