Thematic Review of Climate and Disaster-Resilient Infrastructure in the Pacific
Recognising the countless efforts of building resilient infrastructure in the past and at present, this Synthesis Report is intended as a ‘snapshot’ to capture high-level trends in making Pacific islands infrastructure resilient to climate change and disasters.
The Report is not written as a sector technical report or a performance evaluation. Rather, it functions as a background information paper to inform relevant country governments, stakeholders, communities and institutions in preparation for the Sendai Framework Midterm Review in the Pacific, and the establishment of the Technical Assistance facility, Infrastructure for Resilient Island States (IRIS). By analysing the secondary data and information available in the Pacific, it aims to document good practices as evidence of Pacific resilience building, summarises what is working, what challenges persist from the past seven years, and sets the scene for developing a pathway for improved implementation over the next seven years.
