Introduction: Restoring the Transport Sector after a Disaster
Governments now have access to a large and growing range of financing instruments for rapidly mobilizing funds in the aftermath of a disaster. Instruments like reserve funds, contingent lines of credit, and insurance programs are critical for financing relief, recovery and reconstruction efforts, and they have a demonstrated impact on the ability of governments to manage large-scale disasters.
The Guidance note and associated TORs for Scoping Processes have been updated and shortened for use by countries. All public GPP documents are available on the ‘Agenda for Humanity’ (A4H) website, in the initiatives section - http://www.agendaforhumanity.org/initiatives/gpp.
Ce rapport d’activité fait la synthèse des activités du Résultat 5, connu également sous le nom de l’initiative de financement des risques de catastrophes en Afrique, appelée « ADRF » (Africa Disaster Risk Financing) ou « l’Initiative ADRF », entre le 1er juillet 2016 et le 30 juin 2017. Ce rapport donne un aperçu des activités accomplies jusqu’à cette date, tout en relevant les priorités et les enjeux à venir.
ABOUT THE ADRF INITIATIVE
Background and Executive Summary:
The Global Preparedness Partnership (GPP) was initiated at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016 by the V20 member states, UN agencies and the World Bank to address a long-standing problem of a piecemeal approach to preparedness funding and activity. 2 The GPP aims to provide coherence to preparedness efforts, and a predictable preparedness funding stream, where national governments are in the driver’s seat, with the full support of key multilateral partners.

The most effective decision-making takes place when it is informed by reliable data. Pillar 3 of the Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI) seeks to support the appropriate use of data in decision-making in a range of resilience planning, risk reduction, financing, preparedness, and recovery contexts. OpenDRI does this by supporting the adoption of tools and processes which support engagement, risk visualization, and communication.
