The World Bank DRFIP framework aims to strengthen the capacity of governments to take informed decisions on disaster risk finance, based on sound financial/actuarial analysis and to support stakeholders with better risk information for financial resilience. To support Morocco’s Solidarity Fund and more broadly other World Bank clients in need for actuarial modelling of financial contingent liability, the DRFIP seeks to develop a flood risk model for the Moroccan territory (which could eventually be reused to other countries or contexts). This model should allow the estimate of the probabilistic loss distribution for various risk categories or protection scheme beneficiaries, for Morocco as a whole (ground up losses), as well as for FSEC specifically.

About 5 years ago we embarked on a global initiative titled “Thirsty Energy” to respond to water-energy nexus challenges around the world. The initiative, a joint effort of the Water and the Energy Global Practices at the World Bank, has finally come to an end. We wanted to reflect on the lessons learnt along the way, as our team has developed a fantastic set of material and methodologies to move the needle forward on this issue. We hope that the global community takes advantage of this to ignite change.
