The World Bank-GFDRR DRFIP is seeking support in the development of 4 interactive quantitative tools to support decision-making in financial disaster risk management. The tools will draw on current international best practice in user interface design, transparency and quality in coding, and probabilistic financial and actuarial analysis.
This consultancy covers the compilation and cleansing of data (from public sources); the development of quantitative methodology; and production (design, development, validation and testing) of 4 quantitative interactive tools in MS Excel. The quantitative tools will be generic tools that can be adapted and applied to support capacity building and decision making in many countries. The tools will allow decision makers to assess the liability and fiscal funding gap following a disaster, understand the financial implications of different DRF strategies, as well as answer questions about financial instruments and define relevant policy options.
