THE SENDAI REPORT: Managing Disaster Risks for a Resilient Future


Too often, international financing has been dominated by disaster response after the damage is done rather than prevention and preparedness. Between 1980 and 2009, US$ 91.2 billion in international aid went to disaster-related activities; just US $3.3 billion of that was for prevention and preparedness. The rest included US $63.7 billion for emergency response, US $22.6 billion for reconstruction and rehabilitation, and US $1.5 billion for a combination of purposes.

How donors channel aid matters. Financing dedicated to mainstreaming disaster risk management can enhance overall development effectiveness and help prevent humanitarian assistance growing year on year at a time when donor financing is stretched. Development assistance, both technical and financial, can supply seed funding for national programs, grant technical support to key risk-related areas, and give momentum to comprehensive risk management.
