The Centre for Disaster Protection focuses on managing risks relating to disasters, helping countries move from reaction to readiness, and planning better for future disasters.

The Centre works with a wide range of organizations—country governments, development banks, humanitarian agencies, development insurers, private sector actors, research institutions, and nongovernmental groups—to support partner countries to strengthen their pre-disaster planning and financial arrangements so they can respond more rapidly and effectively when a disaster strikes.

This four-year program has the following goals:

  • Deliver a respected and widely used quality assurance function that increases the quantity and quality of risk financing products and services.
  • Provide effective technical assistance and capacity building that supports high-risk, vulnerable countries to make better risk management decisions.
  • Drive change through evidence, experimentation, and learning that strengthens the global evidence base on risk financing.
  • Through advocacy, improve the quality and quantity of risk financing provided through the multilateral system.

As the managing agent, DAI is responsible for delivering high-quality technical expertise, managing the Centre’s Governance Structure and leading the operational aspects of the Centre. This includes playing a key role on the Centre’s Board, leading the operations of the Centre, and delivering the technical assistance facility.
