Expertise France is the French public international cooperation agency. It designs and implements projects which aim to contribute to the balanced development of partner countries, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda and the priorities of France’s external action. The agency’s mission is to meet the demand of partner countries seeking to enhance the quality of their public policies in order to address the environmental, social, economic and security challenges they are facing.

The agency achieves this goal by implementing projects in the following key areas of public action:
  • Democratic, economic and financial governance
  • Peace, stability and security
  • Climate, agriculture and sustainable development
  • Health and human development
Expertise France falls under the supervision of both the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Economy and Finance. The agency contributes to the development policy objectives of international solidarity and influence through its action in the field. By making the transfer of know-how central to its action, Expertise France promotes working methods, legal and technical standards, but also a French and European vision of economic development and governance.
The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a global partnership that helps developing countries better understand and reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change.

GFDRR is a grant-funding mechanism, managed by the World Bank, that supports disaster risk management projects worldwide.

Working on the ground with over 400 local, national, regional, and international partners, GFDRR provides knowledge, funding, and technical assistance.

The Technical Assistance (TA) Programme for Disaster Rick Financing and Insurance (DRFI) in Caribbean Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs), launched in 2019, is a partnership between the European Union (EU), the World Bank Group (WB), and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). The Program is integral part of RESEMBID. 
The objective of the Programme is to enhance long term resilience and adaptation capacity in OCTs to adapt to extreme and recurrent natural events, to the benefit of the most vulnerable. The Technical Assistance Programme is supporting the OCTs in quantifying financial risk, strengthening financial protection in building financial resilience to disasters. This involves a two-phased approach that is expected to yield an individualized plan that accounts for each OCT’s specific risks, vulnerabilities and priorities.
The beneficiary OCTs are Anguilla, Aruba, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curaçao, Montserrat, Saba, Sint Maarten, St. Barthelemy, St. Eustatius, and Turks and Caicos Islands.
