Main Page: Pacific Disaster Risk Knowledge Series
Disaster risk knowledge is vital for effectively reducing disaster risk and adapting to climate change. The Pacific Disaster Risk Knowledge Series provides a consolidated overview of knowledge around recent and ongoing activities, as well as innovations on the horizon, which strengthens 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 consists of four events in total. The first, public and open event, highlights 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 will bring together regional experts and users of climate and disaster risk information. The events are tailored to relevant Pacific government staff and other prospective users from Pacific Islands nations and will facilitate 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.
Participants who complete the entire series will receive a certificate.
