Eswatini Disaster Risk Finance Diagnostic
The objective of this disaster risk finance (DRF) diagnostic is to assess the status of financial preparedness of Eswatini to disasters and crises. This assessment entails analysis of the following: (i) the scale of economic losses following disasters; (ii) pre-arranged funding available to the government and existing ex post sources of funding; (iii) key legal and institutional arrangements relevant to DRF; and (iv) the funding gap (the difference between the pre-arranged funding available and government liability driven by disaster losses). Based on this analysis, the diagnostic proposes some measures to
strengthen the financial preparedness of Eswatini to disasters and crises.
