The World Bank has supported the NCRMP, the first preventative DRM initiative in India. In the wake of Cyclone Phailin, the program has grown significantly in funding, as well as beyond its initial focus on the states of Odisha and neighboring Andhra Pradesh. Along with the CDRRP, it now covers eight additional states that also benefit from work on building coastline resilience – Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu, and West Bengal.
