The Impact Before Instruments series of technical discussion papers has been produced through a partnership of the Start Network, the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The series responds to the increasing interest in the use of disaster risk financing (DRF) systems and instruments by humanitarian actors. DRF, as originally conceived, aimed to strengthen the financial resilience of governments to respond to disasters. In recent years, donors, humanitarian actors and others have begun to explore the use of DRF approaches for earlier and more predictable humanitarian response. This series reflects on and discusses, what we, as a community of practice need to consider in order to make DRF work in the humanitarian context.
