SPC's 75th Anniversary: New Framework to build resilience to climate change and disasters in the Pacific Islands

Suva

The Pacific Community turned 75 on the 6th of February 2022. As we mark 75 years of the Pacific Community’s Service to the region, on the 6th of each month we will feature a key moment in history for the organization.  


In 2016, Pacific Leaders’ endorsement during the 47th Pacific Island Forum meeting in the Federated States of Micronesia of the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP), the world’s first integrated regional framework to build resilience to climatechange and disasters, has been applauded by Pacific regional and international organisations.

The Framework aims to ensure that climate change and disasters are understood as a development challenge with priority actions to address vulnerability to climate change and disasters and build resilience across all sectors.

The Framework is closely aligned to implementing global agreements such as the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals to help build a more sustainable and safer region.
