This date indicates the date the dataset metadata was created on Pacific Data Hub.

Pacific Island Countries (PICs) face many common challenges in their efforts to utilize disaster risk financing instruments.

The Pacific Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance (DRFI) Program under the Pacific Catastrophe Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative (PCRAFI) has generated discussion at a regional level in order to help countries address their common challenges.

Based on that discussion, the following recommendations have been developed for consideration. 1.) Develop an integrated disaster risk financing and insurance strategy.

  1. Develop a post-disaster budget execution manual to improve awareness of post-disaster procedures and processes

  2. Explore the use of contingent credit to access additional liquidity post-disaster

  3. Develop an insurance program for key public properties.

  4. Develop a regional framework for DRFI.
