Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank document, the Integrated Disaster Risk Management Fund (IDRM Fund) is administered by ADB on behalf of its financing partner, the Government of Canada, and with an implementation period of March 2013-March 2020. Established in 2013, the Integrated Disaster Risk Management Fund (IDRM Fund) aims to achieve an increased access to, and use of, IDRM tools by key stakeholders, including vulnerable groups, particularly women, in Southeast Asia.

Financed activities respond to the Fund's six priority outputs:

(a) enhanced risk identification and analysis;

(b) increased investment in disaster risk reduction;

(c) improved access to disaster risk finance, including for the poor, particularly poor women;

(d) scaling up of community-based and gender-focused approaches;

(e) increased regional cooperation on integrated disaster risk management; and

(f) enhanced knowledge and tools for integrated disaster risk management.

As ADB prepares to close the Fund, the project will prioritize documenting and sharing lessons learned among stakeholders in Southeast Asia, it will facilitate the identification and consolidation of lessons, achievements, and best practices to contribute to a potential scaling-up of sustainable investments.

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
