Lead Disaster Risk Management Specialist
Marc Forni is Lead Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Specialist with the World Bank’s Social, Urban, Rural and Resilience Global Practice. His primary role is to lead the City Resilience Program, and provide support to other global initiatives such as the partnership on disaster linked safety nets, resilient transport, geospatial systems, emergency preparedness and response systems, and attracting private sources of capital to World Bank-financed investment programs.
 
Marc joined the Bank in 2003 and, as part of the Latin America and Caribbean DRM team, he helped implement investment projects in the Caribbean, while he also supported the development of the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility and the CAT DDO instrument.  Following three years of working in the banking sector in New York, he rejoined the Bank to help build the South Asia DRM program, which has grown substantially over the past few years.  In recent times, he has been increasingly active in catalyzing global programs and cross-GP partnerships with Social Protection, Transport, Finance and Markets, and Governance.
