Disaster Risk Management

On 5 October 2021, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the new Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy, the Emergency Assistance Loan Policy, and the Establishment of a Second Window of Assistance under the Asia Pacific Disaster Response Fund. These three policies are meant to increase the impact of ADB’s support to its developing member countries in strengthening their resilience and responding to disasters and emergencies affecting them.
