Natural Disasters


How we help countries

In order to help countries put in place an efficient financial risk management strategy the IDB vision follows the next steps:

  • Promotion of dialogue among countries, public international institutions and the private sector about specific topics related to fiscal risks stemming about natural disasters and contingent liability management.
  • Support interventions to strengthen public institutions that are responsible for disaster risk financial management.
  • Provision of tailor-made solutions based on countries specific needs and capabilities.
  • Encouragement of private sector participation and deepening of the domestic risk markets, as well as their integration with regional and international markets
  • Coordination with related initiatives implemented in Latin America and the Caribbean by other multilateral institutions and agencies.
