What is the main purpose of CCRIF?

CCRIF was developed to help mitigate the short-term cash flow problems small developing economies suffer after major natural disasters. A critical challenge is often the need for short-term liquidity to maintain essential government services until additional resources become available. Although ex post disaster funding from bilateral and multilateral agencies can be an important component of a government’s catastrophe risk management strategy, over-reliance on this approach has obvious limitations. Unfortunately, donor assistance often takes months to materialise, and usually supports specific infrastructure projects. CCRIF represents a cost-effective way to pre-finance short-term liquidity to begin recovery efforts for an individual government after a catastrophic event, thereby filling the gap between immediate response aid and long-term redevelopment.
