Natural disasters generate significant fiscal risk and create major budget volatility. Even countries with robust disaster-risk management programs can be highly exposed to the economic and fiscal shocks caused by major disasters. Often being called upon to deal with catastrophic events, Indonesia has exemplified immense resilience and become a global leader in post-disaster reconstruction. Through its Ministry of Finance, Indonesia is also ensuring that financial planning for disasters is a core priority and will launch its National Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance Strategy during this event. The World Bank is supporting countries such as Indonesia to develop financial protection strategies, so they can respond more quickly to disasters. During this event, the World Bank and the Government of Indonesia, together with other leaders from Asia will discuss lessons learned and future priorities in building financial resilience to disasters.
