The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) devotes a significant proportion of its resources—up to 24 percent—to capacity-building efforts. In line with its mission, this is aimed at boosting the capacity of developing countries to better understand emerging disaster risks, reduce their vulnerabilities to natural hazards, and adapt to climate change. Capacity-building activities are generally integrated into GFDRR projects to support the overall objectives, rather than standalone projects.
