Strengthening
risk-informed development

The Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management supports partner countries in their efforts against extreme events, to safeguard development and to protect lives. In its third phase (2020-2023), GIDRM aims at strengthening risk-informed development.

Risk-informed development is an understanding of development that takes into account a wide range of independent, dynamic, transnational and in some cases simultaneous development risks.
