Summary

To help track progress towards effective flood risk management, the World Bank, with support from GFDRR, has prepared a Knowledge Note that outlines a ready-to-use method for measuring progress. The method was designed for application in Pacific Island countries, where disastrous floods have occurred in recent years, including Fiji, Samoa, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
