  • World Bank Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). November 2013
  • This report shows why building climate resilience is critical to ending extreme poverty and building shared prosperity. The report opens international discussions related to understanding loss and damage from climate change and calls for the international development community to work across disciplines and sectors to build long-term resilience, reduce risk and avoid climbing future costs. It emphasizes the necessity of building and empowering institutions for the sustained effort needed for making development climate and disaster resilient and by highlighting best practices, it shows how financial instruments and intervention programs, along with disaster preparedness expertise developed over decades, are already helping nations prepare for a more changeable world.
