Global Fund for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), a World Bank-led partnership, has been involved in most aspects of disaster preparedness and resilience building globally. The Annual Report 2014: Building Resilience to Scale is a virtual encyclopedia of who does what in disaster relief and preparedness. ADB, too, has been active.
Here is a small excerpt from ADB’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management in the Pacific:
The Pacific region is already experiencing changes in climate such as higher temperatures, changing rainfall patterns, varying frequencies of natural hazard events, and sea-level rise. It is important to integrate climate change considerations within existing disaster risk reduction (DRR) tools, as DRR based only on past and current experiences is likely to fail in building resilience to future risks.
