Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRM)

ADB helps its member countries become more resilient to disasters by financing flood control and water resource management projects, as well as innovative ways of financing disaster risk management.

Investments in disaster resilience can reduce losses, contributing to sustained economic growth, poverty reduction, and enhanced natural resources management. These investments have the most far-reaching effect if they are undertaken in the context of wider development and are carefully integrated into the development process. Successful investment in resilience also requires active cooperation between governments, the private sector, civil society, and the international community.
