This paper synthesizes World Bank analyses of strategies to build resilience and of national policies and operational platforms meant to assist the poor in managing disaster and climate risk. The goal is to highlight practical ways of funnelling disaster and climate risk financing directly to those most in need and to empower poor communities to drive their own risk management efforts based on their development goals. Such financing options for the poor include social funds, social protection systems and safety nets, community-driven development projects, and similar mechanisms that target households and communities directly.
