Climate and Disaster Resilient Transport in Small Island Developing States : A Call for Action

Climate and Disaster Resilient Transport in Small Island Developing States : A Call for Action
November 2017

The transport sector plays a central role in the vulnerability of small island developing states (SIDS), and resilient transport policies can significantly reduce future losses in assets and well-being. This report proposes solutions to integrate climate and disaster risk considerations in transport infrastructure lifecycle management and, in this way, enhance the resilience of transport systems. It proposes a path forward for replicating best practices and deploying resilient transport infrastructure in SIDS.
