COVID-19 Series: Disaster Risk Financing

COVID-19 Series: Disaster Risk Financing

This rapid literature review on disaster risk financing (DRF) and public finance is part of a COVID-19 series of publications from Maintains.

Large health shocks such as pandemics are expensive. They require resources to finance the response, recovery, and longer-term economic and social losses. Drawing on literature from DRF and public financial management (PFM), this review provides a snapshot of the current state of research and commentary on the impact of health shocks on PFM systems in low-income and lower middle-income countries.

Authored by Felix Lung, Maintains Global DRF Advisor and Learning Lead.
