Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery Challenge Fund

Type of projects: A special focus of this challenge fund will be on disaster risk financing mechanisms to support food security. However, this is not a requirement for success. The fund is seeking projects which pilot and support the development of innovative risk financing mechanisms which align global innovations with on-the-ground needs. There are 2 themes: (1) Disaster Risk Financing for Early-Action. Examples include using forecast-based mechanisms to shift the humanitarian paradigm from response after a shock to early, prohibitive measures at the first signs of an impending disaster; (2) Big data for Disaster Risk Financing. Examples include improving impact forecasting by collecting and processing data as signs of change are being detected, or as an event is unfolding.

Closing date: 30 June 2018
