RESPAC Disaster Risk Management Information Workshop
29 - 30 May 2018
The Disaster Resilience for Pacific Small Island Developing States (RESPAC) project aims to improve Pacific SIDS resilience to climate-related hazards. This project responds directly to Outcome 5 of the UNDP Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 i.e. "Countries are able to reduce the likelihood of conflict and lower the risk of natural disasters including from climate change."
The project facilitated the first RESPAC DRM information workshop on Tuesday, 29 and Wednesday, 30 May 2018, with development partners in Suva to optimize DRM data, databases or information systems that support disaster preparedness, response and recovery in the region.
The workshop targeted the
- Understanding of existing data and key databases for DRM in the Pacific region.
- Limitations and opportunities to enhance data accessibility, coordination and sharing among development agencies in the region.
- Possibility of strengthening existing networks or working group to optimize information for disaster preparedness, planning and support in the region.
