PCRAFI Country Note Solomon Islands

Date created: 15 April 2020
This date indicates the date the dataset metadata was created on Pacific Data Hub.

This report aims to build understanding of the existing disaster risk financing and insurance (DRFI) tools in use in the Solomon Islands and to identify gaps where engagement could further develop financial resilience./// It also aims to encourage peer exchange of regional knowledge, specifically by encouraging dialogue on past experiences, lessons learned, optimal use of these financial tools, and the effect these tools may have on the execution of post-disaster funds. A number of options to improve DRFI are presented here for consideration: (a) Develop a post-disaster budget execution manual to improve awareness of post-disaster procedures and processes; (b) Develop an integrated disaster risk financing and insurance strategy; and (c) Explore the use of other DRFI tools such as contingent credit to access additional liquidity post-disaster.
