The Pacific Experience in Developing Policy and Legislation on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation

The Pacific Experience in Developing Policy and Legislation on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation
  • United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR). 2013
  • The purpose of this study is to contribute to the process towards developing the Pacific integrated regional strategy for disaster risk management and climate change by 2015, and the global consultations for a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. It also aims to contribute to the discussions held at the 2013 Joint Meeting of the Pacific Platform for Disaster Risk Management and the Pacific Climate Change Round Table. The study explores the drivers and process to develop Joint National Action Plans on Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change, primary Disaster Risk Management (DRM) legislation, and sustainable development plans addressing DRR and Climate Change Action in selected Pacific island countries (PICs). It also briefly discusses the experiences so far in the implementation of these instruments. The three PICs included in this study are Cook Islands, Solomon Islands and Tonga.
