This document provides a summary of the design plan and serves as a road map for the tailoring and application of RiskScape for Vanuatu. It consolidates the information generated and decisions made during the design workshops.
The Pacific Risk Tool for Resilience project (PARTneR) aims to tailor the RiskScape tool for application to disaster risk management (DRM) in Pacific Island Countries, and is being piloted in Samoa and Vanuatu. RiskScape is a natural hazards impact and loss modelling tool developed to support DRM related decision making in New Zealand, with applications to overseas contexts. PARTneR is being funded through the New Zealand Partnerships Fund administered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and is managed by NIWA in collaboration with 5 partners: the Samoa Disaster Management Office; the Vanuatu Disaster Management Office working with the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department; GNS Science and the Pacific Community - Geoscience Division.
