The Pacific Islands Forum and the Pacific Catastrophe Risk Insurance Company (PCRIC) have confirmed a new partnership which includes the placement of a Forum PCRIC Regional Coordinator to provide advice and capacity building to Pacific Island Countries.

In a virtual meeting held earlier this month, the PIFS Deputy Secretary General, Dr Filimon Manoni and PCRIC Chief Executive Officer, Aholotu Palu, reaffirmed their commitment to the partnership aimed at helping Pacific nations to increase planning and preparedness against disasters.

“In these uncertain times with many disasters happening in the region, we need to look at innovative ways to support our members,” said Dr Manoni.
