What are public catastrophe funds?

 

A public catastrophe fund is a pre-disaster measure where the government implicitly self-insures by setting aside money to finance some of the recovery needs following a disaster. Alternatively, the government can mobilize its own financing sources by such policy instruments as imposing taxes, borrowing domestically or internationally, or diverting from the public budget.
