The Pacific Humanitarian Challenge

Pacific countries are highly exposed to the impacts of climate change and extreme natural events.  In recognition of these difficulties the challenge seeks innovative solutions, and the opportunity to prototype new ways of preparing for and responding to natural disasters. Specifically it seeks to re-think three critical challenges − the communication of needs; humanitarian logistics; and financial resilience – in responding to disasters, and to ultimately contribute to building a more resilient Pacific.
