The outcome is expected to be a strengthened information system that will support informed decision-making aimed at minimizing the negative social and environmental impacts of catastrophic events. It will also mitigate the financial risk of participating Pacific developing member countries to the effects of natural disasters, including those exacerbated by human-induced climate change. This work is linked to the World Bank's work on the development of a Caribbean Catastrophe Insurance Facility for the Pacific.
