In January 2021, UNDRR produced the Risk Sensitive Budget Review of Ethiopia. This is part of a series of studies on disaster risk reduction investments across sub-Saharan African countries.
In compliance with target F and Additional Target 2 and Additional Target 3, the report provides information on the estimated amount of national Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) expenditures from both internal and external sources. Employing a risk-sensitive budget review (RSBR) methodology, the review tags domestic resources, allocated both directly and indirectly, and international finances such as Official Development Assistance (ODA) and other official flows towards DRR and CCA. Such a review guides resource-allocation decisions and, where information on investment costs is available, allows to identify financing gaps.
UNDRR will use the key findings of this study and recommendations to support the Disaster Risk Management Commission (DRMC) of Ethiopia to track and advocate for better-targeted investments towards DRR.
