Managing disaster risk in emerging economies by Alcira Kreimer( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents papers on several events organized by the World Bank's Disaster Management Fund (DMF). The DMF's objectives are to help the Bank provide a more strategic and rapid response to disaster emergencies and to integrate disaster prevention and mitigation measures in all Bank activities. Part I of this book on risk identification contains chapters on the economic impacts on natural disasters in developing countries, including flooding, with the example of Buenos Aires; and time scales of climate and disaster. Part II explores aspects of reducing disaster risk, such as the relationship of infrastructure, natural disasters, and poverty; flooding issues in the United States, incentives for risk management and mitigation concerning cultural heritage; issues related to single-family housing, women, and children; and climate change from a development perspective. Part III looks at strategies for developing countries to more effectively share and transfer disaster risk from the angles of risk and insurance by the poor in developing countries; financing disaster mitigation for the poor; moral dimensions of risk transfer and reduction strategies; incentives for mitigation investment and risk management to encourage public-private partnerships; and linking catastrophe insurance and mitigating disaster losses
Managing disaster risk in Mexico : Market Incentives for Mitigation Investment by Alcira Kreimer( )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study is to assess the current capacity of Mexico to deal with disaster risk and to identify ways in which the impacts of catastrophes on the economy can be reduced. The study analyzes the three main components of a comprehensive disaster risk management strategy: risk identification, risk reduction, and risk transfer and financing. Mexico is vulnerable to a variety of natural disasters, including earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanoes. Despite the frequency with which these disasters strike, however, inadequate investment is made in mitigation efforts, and insufficient funds are set aside to pay for relief and reconstruction efforts. As a result, when a disaster occurs, the government is often forced to use funds that had been allocated to other programs, disrupting the operations of those programs. The effect is to reduce growth and derail important development efforts. The Mexican government could use mechanisms to manage risk so that ongoing programs are not disrupted following a disaster. Doing so involves identifying the risks the country faces, mitigating the damage caused by those risks, and transferring the risk to other parties (namely, insurance companies and the capital markets)

The World Bank's experience with post-conflict reconstruction by Alcira Kreimer( )

18 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication synthesizes the findings of an assessment of the Bank's experience with post-conflict reconstruction. Its objective is to distill lessons from the Bank's experience in the subject. The study is based on a review of the Bank's global portfolio, revealing the Bank's critical role in the reconstruction after conflict. The main recommendation is that the Bank should develop an Operational Policy on the subject, to address readiness in the provision of economic development advice during peace negotiations; aid coordination following conflict; leadership on macroeconomic and external debt issues; priority definitions in macroeconomic stabilization; infrastructure rebuilding; and the restoration of human and social capital. The assessment's core consists of nine case studies in Bosnia and Herzegovina, El Salvador, Uganda, Cambodia, Eritrea, Haiti, Lebanon, Rwanda, and Sri Lanka. Causes of state failure or collapse, phases of Bank assistance, and the extent of destruction experience were diverse. Six key issues were analyzed in these case studies: 1) The Bank's main strengths or comparative advantages; 2) its partnership with other donors, etc.; 3) its role in reconstruction strategy and needs assessment; 4) its role in rebuilding the economy and institutions of governance; 5) its management of resources and processes; and 6) its monitoring and evaluation experience
