Main Page: Pacific Disaster Risk Knowledge Series

19 May 2022 to 25 August 2022

Disaster risk knowledge is vital for effectively reducing disaster risk and adapting to climate change. The Pacific Disaster Risk Knowledge Series provided a consolidated overview of knowledge around recent and ongoing activities and innovations on the horizon, strengthening the evidence on climate and disaster risks for more resilient development planning and programming.

Co-hosted by ADB and The Pacific Community, the Pacific Disaster Risk Knowledge Series consisted of four events in total. The first, public and open event, highlighted Pacific views of generating, communicating, and using disaster and climate risk information reflecting experiences from the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, and Tonga.

Subsequent three peer learning sessions brought together regional experts and users of climate and disaster risk information. The events were tailored to relevant Pacific government staff and other prospective users from Pacific Islands nations and facilitated deeper discussions about:

  • available risk information and key innovations,
  • application of risk knowledge in planning, programming, and operations, and
  • how to maximize the quality and value of risk information through meaningful collaboration.
