• strengthening support for reducing disaster risk in developing member countries;
•providing rehabilitation and reconstruction assistance following disasters; and

The Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy is being implemented through an integrated disaster risk management (IDRM) approach that bring together the elements of disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA), and disaster risk financing (DRF) within an overarching context of resilience.
