Small Island States Resilience Initiative

Small islands, big challenges

Program Overview

GFDRR is helping small island states build larger pipelines of resilience investments to withstand the impacts of climate change – from safeguarding coastal areas to building safety nets that protect citizens after disaster strikes. It offers just-in-time, expert assistance on flood and landslide risk assessment, safer infrastructure, social and financial safety nets, and implementation capacity. Through a global community of practice, SISRI links island practitioners with one another, and with global knowledge on building resilience.
