Framework for resilient development in the Pacific: An integrated approach to address climate change and disaster risk management 2017 - 2030
This regional framework has been developed to provide an integrated approach to address climate and disaster risks. The framework recognises the clear overlaps between climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, and the similar tools and resources required to address these risks at both policy and programmatic level. It provides high-level strategic guidance to different stakeholder groups on how to enhance resilience to climate change and disasters, in ways that contribute to and are embedded in sustainable development.
The framework identifies three inter-related goals that need to be actively pursued by all stakeholders, working in partnership, in order to enhance resilience to disasters and climate change in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty.
- Strengthened integrated adaptation and risk reduction to enhance resilience to climate change and disasters
- Low-carbon development
- Strengthened disaster preparedness, response and recovery
For the Pacific Island Countries (PICs), the implementation of the FRDP contributes to the implementation of global frameworks including the Agenda for Sustainable Development 2015- 2030, UNFCCC Paris Agreement on Climate Change 2015, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030, and the Small Islands Developing States Accelerated Modalities of Action (S.A.M.O.A.) Pathway. More importantly it specifically recognises the need to enhance the implementation capacity of developing countries, in particular Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
