Mexico’s Natural Disaster Fund – A Review

“As part of its disaster risk management efforts, the Federal Government of Mexico established the Fund for Natural Disasters FONDEN to support disaster relief and reconstruction. FONDEN was originally established as a budgetary tool through which federal funds were annually allocated for expenditure on post-disaster response. Since then, FONDEN has evolved significantly; changes to its operating rules and procedures have improved FONDEN’s overall efficiency and effectiveness, and the introduction of several additional windows have further strengthened disaster risk management.”
