The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We provide low-interest loans, interest-free credits, and grants to developing countries. These support a wide array of investments in such areas as education, health, public administration, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, agriculture, and environmental and natural resource management. World Bank operations in the East Asia and Pacific region cover 22 countries. Increasing resilience to extreme climate events, rising sea levels, and other natural hazards is a major medium-term challenge for the region, which has experienced more than 70% of the world’s natural disasters and sustained 82% of total disaster fatalities since 1997. The Bank’s work encompasses analytical and advisory services in disaster and climate change risk assessments, the development of risk financing options, and risk-mitigation policies.
