Hotspots Partners and Sponsors

The Hotspots project was initiated by the World Bank and Columbia
University under the umbrella of the ProVention Consortium with funding
from the United Kingdom's Department for International Development.
Additional support for the case studies was provided by the Norwegian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the U.S. Agency for International
Development. The Hotspots project benefited enormously from interactions with the project on Reducing Disaster Risk (UNDP 2004), a collaborative effort involving the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and others.
