IRF Partners with World Bank on Resilient Transport

Small Island Developing States are a group of countries located across the world in the Caribbean, Pacific, Africa, and Indian Ocean regions which are disproportionately exposed and vulnerable to natural hazards. As a consequence, to physical damage to the infrastructure, transport disruptions can cripple key economic sectors like tourism, fishing, or agriculture, and cut off access to healthcare, education, and other essential services.

Recognizing the need to improve the management of transport assets and to plan for growing risks, in the face of a changing climate, the World Bank partnered with IRF to develop a freely accessible, self-paced online training program which provides strategic, experiential, and practical knowledge on how to integrate climate and disaster risk considerations in the management of transport assets specially adapted to the needs of Small Island Developing States.
