Govt focused on building resilience


Sep 22, 2022 04:35:33 PM

Minister for Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu says the Government is focused on building resilience and becoming a central part of the work particularly in the context of the Pacific.
Seruiratu highlighted this during a Gender Expert and Champions Meeting, held along the margins of the Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (APMCDRR) currently underway in Brisbane, Australia.
The meeting brought together stakeholders for an engaging discussion on equality and women’s leadership in DRR.
"Our communities are already dealing with the impacts of climate change and the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPCC) reports tell us that we should expect the intensity and frequency of weather events to worsen if the world does not actively shift to decarbonizing their economies. And in the last 2-3 years, COVID-19 has added a new dimension to our work as policymakers, humanitarian and development practitioners, and first responders," Seruiratu said.
"This conference is an important opportunity for the Pacific to not only renew political will and commitment to achieving the Sendai Framework but to also advocate strongly for the Midterm Review to be as inclusive and gender responsive as possible. We need to be able to share lessons about what is working well in our region, what is not and what support we need to achieve our commitments."
Seruiratu highlighted that stakeholders needed to work together to drive us to achieve the targets set out in the Sendai Framework.
"So what should we do as a region to ensure that we deliver on our commitments of the Sendai Framework? How can we better organise our work, our efforts and focus to achieve the Sendai Framework by 2030?  These are pertinent questions that we need to ask ourselves and I would be interested to hear your perspectives and views on the Government's role, understanding that governments cannot do everything. We need all stakeholders to work together."”
"Government of course needs to create an enabling environment to ensure that our disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation policies, plans and strategies are inclusive and respond to the needs of all our people including our women and girls in all their diversity, the elderly, and people with disabilities."
He explained there was also a need to ensure that we were building resilience collectively and at all levels – disaster and climate, economic, health and the list goes on.
"For our region, in particular, disaster and climate resilience are central to all other aspects of our development.  Without resilient infrastructure and systems, economies, communities and people – we will not attain the 2030 goals, in fact, we are at risk of losing some of the development gains achieved in the last decade."
"Making systemic changes in the way we prepare for, respond, and recover from disasters requires leadership and commitment at all levels from subnational, national to regional and global levels."
