Roadmap

Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP)

About

The Pacific Region is in the process of preparing a new Framework to address more effectively the risks and challenges posed by climate change and disasters within the context of resilient development. 

This process, which was initially endorsed by the Pacific region in 2011, and was officially kick-started in 2013, with the first Joint Meeting of the Pacific Platform for Disaster Risk Management (PPDRM) and the Pacific Climate Change Roundtable (PCCR), came to be known as the ‘Roadmap’. 

The three outputs of the Roadmap process by 2015 are:
•    Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific : An Integrated Approach to Address Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (FRDP)   
•    Regional Synthesis Report on the implementation of the current regional frameworks (RFA and PIFACC)
•    Compendium of Case Studies on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management in the Pacific

The new Framework, which is to be called, Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific : An Integrated Approach to Address Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (FRDP) the will succeed the existing two regional frameworks which expire in 2015 (the Pacific Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action (RFA) and the Pacific Islands Framework for Action on Climate Change (PIFACC).

The Roadmap process is led by a Steering Committee whose members are PICT representatives from various regional meetings (SPREP Meeting, SPC CRGA, Regional Disaster Managers Meeting, Pacific Climate Change Roundtable, Pacific Meteorological Council and Forum Economic Ministers Meeting), a representative for the French Territories, a representative for Civil Society and a representative for the Private Sector. 

The Roadmap process is also supported by a Technical Working Group comprising several partner organisations (SPC, SPREP, UNISDR, PIFS, USP, and UNDP) and two Regional Advisors in charge of drafting the document (Cristelle Pratt and John Hay).

A very broad range of stakeholders are being consulted through a participatory and inclusive engagement process. This comprises workshops conducted at national and regional level, and specifically tailored for different stakeholder groups, involving national stakeholders, partners and donors, civil society organisations and the private sector, amongst others.  The Pacific region is leading the way on this process, as it will be the first region in the world to fully integrate Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change into a single overarching policy framework.

Compendium of Case Studies on Climate and Disaster Resilient Development in the Pacific

The Compendium showcases programs and projects that address climate and disaster risks, through climate change adaptation, disaster risk management and/or greenhouse gas emissions reduction. The compendium highlights lessons learnt that may be used as a resource for future initiatives moving forward under the SRDP.

Please see Compendium here in English and here in French. 

Regional Synthesis Report on the implementation of the RFA and PIFACC

This Regional Synthesis Report can be downloaded here summarises progress made towards the implementation of the two regional frameworks:

  •  The Pacific Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action 2005–2015 (RFA)
  •  The Pacific Islands Framework for Action on Climate Change 2006–2015 (PIFACC)

The report is a synthesis of the key progress and lessons learned over the 11 years of implementation of the RFA and PIFACC at the regional level. The report also outlines key challenges faced for implementation and recommendations for moving forward
