Induction on Start Ready Basis Risk

Induction on Start Ready Basis Risk


27 July 2022




One of the main three pillars of the Disaster Risk Financing system is risk analytics.

Risk models always need to be reviewed, verified, and calibrated to minimise the false triggering of the model. As it is known this false triggering is called basis risk and Start Ready provides funds for members to implement activities in case the hazard materialised while the model failed to alarm.

We are pleased to invite colleagues, organisations, and their local partners from the 6 countries that Start Ready is implementing in (Bangladesh, DRC, Pakistan, The Philippines, Senegal, and Zimbabwe), to know more about basis risk and the sort of financial support that can be accessed through Start Ready on this scope.

The webinar will take place on 27th July 2022 9:00-10:30am BST and will be conducted in English.

Another session in French will be conducted later this year. Members and their local partners are welcome to participate with no limits on numbers from each organisation. Please contact for any further information.

Before attending the session, it is highly encouraged to complete the following e-course and watch these two videos that will give you an understanding on the DRF system and the risk model:
