Establishment of a Second Window of Assistance under the Asia Pacific Disaster Response Fund

Institutional Document | June 2021

The second window will be established under the Asia Pacific Disaster Response Fund (APDRF) to finance experts to provide speedy post-disaster technical support for the preparation of PDNAs recovery plans, and post-disaster projects.

The funding will enable ADB to participate more consistently in post-disaster needs assessments (PDNAs) as part of a multidonor team and support the timely processing and start-up of emergency assistance loans (EALs). The second window will not finance any technical support needs arising during post-disaster project implementation.
