Strategy for Climate and Disaster Resilient Development in the Pacific (SRDP) ;…
Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) are highly exposed to a range of natural hazards of hydro-meteorological origin (such as cyclones, droughts and floods) and geological origin (including volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis). These hazards often lead to disasters, which exacerbate existing development challenges of the region. Of the top twenty countries with the highest average annual losses to GDP from disasters, eight are Pacific Island countries. The overall goal of the SRDP is to strengthen the resilience of Pacific Island communities to the impacts of slow and sudden onset natural hazards by developing more effective and integrated ways to address climate and disaster risks, within the context of sustainable development. To achieve this goal, the SRDP provides targeted high level strategic guidance to key stakeholder groups that are recognized as having a critical role to play in addressing the challenges posed by CC and disasters in the Pacific.
