Towards more resilient development

The Governance for Resilient Development in the Pacific (Gov4Res) project works with Pacific Island governments to ensure that countries adapt their decision making and governance systems towards more resilient development. The project theory of change rests on a core assumption that Pacific Island people will be more resilient to the impacts of climate change and disasters if countries manage all development through a ‘risk informed’ approach. This is consistent with the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP), which calls for the ‘mainstreaming’ of climate and disaster risk treating risk management as fundamental to all development decisions.​
