Multidonor Disaster Prevention Trust Fund (MDP)

MDP finances non-reimbursable technical cooperation operations and investment grant operations to support IDB borrowing member countries to: (i) manage risks related to natural hazards by reducing vulnerability, and by preventing and mitigating disasters before they occur; (ii) leverage knowledge, good practice, tools and government commitment for risk management solutions; and (iii) provide a vehicle for developing a shared approach to supporting disaster risk management in the region.

MDP is part of IDB's NDC Invest Platform, a one-stop shop of the IDB Group to help countries access resources needed to translate national climate commitments into investment plans and bankable projects. NDC Invest is a platform that includes the entire universe of financial and non-financial instruments of the IDB Group, and it is comprised of four elements: NDC Programmer, NDC Pipeline Accelerator, NDC Market Booster and NDC Finance Mobilizer. Together, the components aim to enable progress toward both the NDC and IDB lending objectives, as well as toward achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
