This chapter reflects on the benefits of disaster risk management (DRM) in the context of fiscal policy and public investment. Of particular interest is the question of how those in charge of fiscal policy decisions can recognise and realise the economic and broader benefits of DRM.

Climate Change: The Fiscal Risks Facing The Federal Government: A Preliminary Assessment.

Climate change is already affecting communities across the United States. This report outlines the contours of fiscal risk through five program-specific assessments: crop insurance, health care, wildfire suppression, hurricane-related disaster relief, and Federal facility flood risk. These programs were assessed because they are directly influenced by climate change, they have strong links to the Federal Budget, and quantitative scientific and economic models regarding the likely magnitude of impacts were available.
