Payments by CDB will be made only at the request of CDEMA and upon approval by CDB and will be subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Financing Agreement. The Financing Agreement prohibits withdrawal from the financing account for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. No party other than CDEMA shall derive any rights from the Financing Agreement or have any claim to the proceeds of the Financing.

The purpose of this Call for Papers is to encourage additional research investigating the contributory factors to our understanding of the creation and propagation of disaster risk, as well as the conducive conditions and impediments to the prevention of its formation, its reduction and the strengthening of the resilience of societies.  Research will inter alia provide insight into the genetics of risk creation and propagation, identify good practices in managing risk, highlight the impacts of disaster risk reduction measures at all scales, and explore what drives risk perception and behavior.
