ACCOUNTABILITY TO AT RISK COMMUNITIES IN DISASTER RISK FINANCING (DRF) SYSTEMS: GUIDANCE NOTE
13 September 2021
Disaster risk financing is an innovative approach for timely and predictable crisis management. With decisions about how a crisis will be monitored, funded and acted on taken in advance, there are new opportunities and challenges around ensuring accountability to affected populations (AAP).
This short guide explains how AAP for DRF might be applied differently than for traditional humanitarian response, with different opportunities and challenges. It then provides some practical tips for ensuring AAP in different elements of your DRF system.
This work builds on research which took place in the Start Network in 2020, including Start Network's experience of Disaster Risk Financing in Senegal, Pakistan, Kenya and Madagascar. This included a review of project documentation along with the perspectives of twenty stakeholders involved in building and implementing disaster risk financing systems.
