Understanding Risk Finance Pacific Forum
|Host||Financial Protection Forum|
On October 16-19, 2018 policy-makers and experts from Pacific Islands and around the world will gather in Port Vila, Vanuatu for the Understanding Risk Finance Pacific (URFPacific) Forum, co-organized by the World Bank’s Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance Program and the Government of Vanuatu. URf Pacific is part of the PCRAFI Program, which supports regional efforts to strengthen the financial resilience of PICs through contributions from Canada, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Over four days of exciting discussions and in-depth trainings, URf Pacific will offer a platform to explore the challenges and opportunities of managing disaster risk in Pacific Island Countries (PICs), and Small Island States more broadly. URf Pacific will bring together policymakers, financial risk managers, and development partners to strengthen regional collaboration on climate and disaster risk finance. Interactive sessions will showcase innovative approaches in government action, community engagement, and private sector solutions, focusing on two core themes: understanding risk and building financial resilience.
