Not if but when: adapting to natural hazards, a policy note

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

The goal of this Policy Note is to influence policy makers and development partners in the Pacific Islands region to undertake risk management of natural hazards and minimize the future impacts of natural disasters, climate change and sea level rise. As a short-term objective, the Policy Note aims to review the disaster trends and lessons learned from pilot risk management of natural hazards initiatives, and recommend a strategic way forward. Particular attention is paid to the three ‘I’s’ of risk management of natural hazards: Incentives, Institutions and Instruments.
