Acting today for tomorrow: a policy and practice note for climate and disaster resilient development in the pacific islands region

This policy and practice note presents some analysis and recommendations meant to inform disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) planning across a range of institutions at all levels. It grows out of extensive consultations with countries, regional organizations, and donors and other development partners, and it is addressed primarily to high-level policymakers and decision makers within them.

It describes: (i) the consequences of not acting today, especially for Pacific island countries such as Vanuatu, Niue, Tonga, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, the Marshall Islands, and the Cook Islands; (ii) lessons of the last decade through DRR and CCA initiatives in the Pacific since late 1990s; (iii) the way forward: overcoming remaining barriers; and (iv) recommendations for fostering resilient development.
