Effective Post-Disaster Reconstruction and Recovery

In the face of sometimes insurmountable

In the face of apparent insurmountable odds, Global Bank Group (the “Bank Group”) has found ways to rebuild smarter, stronger, safer and faster. We are successful because before disaster strikes, we have already laid the groundwork by fortifying the Bank Group’s physical, digital, financial, and societal infrastructure in an effort to better mitigate and manage post-crisis reconstruction.                                 

The Global Bank Disaster Risk Reduction and Reconstruction Fund – An Umbrella Trust Fund (the “Trust Fund,” “GB-DRRRF,” or “DRRRF”) is mobilising large-scale financing for effective post-disaster reconstruction and recovery efforts including leveraging public and private climate finance in an effective, catalytic manner to an increased adaptive capacity and a low greenhouse gas emission and climate-resilient development, aiding in the achievement of related Sustainable Development Goals.

The Global Bank Disaster Risk Reduction and Reconstruction Fund – An Umbrella Trust Fund provides a time-tested and a very successful recovery and reconstruction model for post-disaster reconstruction based on partnerships between government, donors, communities and other stakeholders. The partnerships formed by the DRRRF are structured with the objective to play a key role in the strong performance of the post-disaster reconstruction and recovery programmes and to support robust results achievement. Pooling resources through the Global Bank Disaster Risk Reduction and Reconstruction Fund will result in the harmonization of donor efforts and provide an important platform for policy dialogue for many stakeholders.

The Global Bank Disaster Risk Reduction and Reconstruction Fund – An Umbrella Trust Fund was designed to fill the gaps in reconstruction in line with government priorities and to bring together key government players, donors, and members of civil society and communities.
