Committed to reducing vulnerabilities to hazards by mainstreaming disaster reduction and recovery in development strategies.
The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a partnership of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) system to support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA).
On 29 September 2006, the World Bank, donor partners and key stakeholders of the ISDR system formally launched the GFDRR. A draft of this Charter was first circulated to prospective donors beginning in January 2007 and benefited from comments received during the ensuing consultation process. Now the present document as adopted by the Consultative Group on 23 February 2007 serves as the initial Charter of the GFDRR.
