PCRAFI SB Country Profile

No abstract Contributing to the third phase of the Pacific Catastrophe Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative (PCRAFI), this project is supported by the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Program with co-financing from the Global Fund for Disaster Risk Reduction. 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.provided.
