Foreword

Disasters present a broad range of human, social, financial, economic and environmental impacts, with potentially long-lasting, multi-generational effects. The financial management of these impacts is a key challenge for individuals and governments in developed and developing countries. G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors and Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) Finance Ministers have recognised the importance and priority of disaster risk management (DRM) strategies and, in particular, disaster risk assessment and risk financing.
