Current and Future Tropical Cyclone Risk in Pacific: Solomon Islands
The Solomon Islands have been affected by devastating cyclones on multiple occasions, e.g. 1986 Namu. The current climate average annual loss due to tropical cyclones represents about 0.85% of the country’s GDP. The primary goal of the project is to improve understanding of the risks posed by tropical cyclone hazards (winds, floods, and storm surge) to key assets in the Pacific region, under current and future climate scenarios. A clearer understanding of the current level of risk in financial terms - and the way that risk will change in the future - will aid decision makers in prioritising adaptation measures for issues such as land-use zoning, urban infrastructure planning, and ex-ante disaster planning.
