The intended goal of this paper is to expand the IDB's current disaster policy in the area of human-driven disasters. This paper explores and expands on the definition and scope of "human-driven" disasters in order to strengthen the policy in its present area of "unexpected" disasters. This paper also discusses risk management financing instruments and provides recommendations on delivery mechanisms and systems and coverage and costs.
