Towards sustainable flood risk management in Pacific Island countries

31 Jan 2018, WB

To help track progress towards effective flood risk management, the World Bank, with support from the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, has prepared a Knowledge Note that outlines a ready-to-use method for measuring progress. The method was designed for application in Pacific Island countries, where disastrous floods have occurred in recent years, including Fiji, Samoa, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
