Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR)

Description:

Established in 2006, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a partnership of 38 countries and 7 international organizations committed to helping developing countries reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and adapt to climate change. The partnership’s mission is to mainstream disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) in country development strategies by supporting a country-led and managed implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA). GFDRR’s Partnership Charter, revised in April 2010, sets its original mission, rationale, and governance structure. The GFDRR partnership strategy 2009–2012: 'reducing disaster risks for sustainable development', outlines a medium-term strategic framework for GFDRR and aims to mainstreaming disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation for sustainable development.
