Seminar on Hardship and Vulnerability in the Pacific

March 10, 2014

University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji

The primary objectives of the Seminar are to present the World Bank's global World Development Report 2014 "Risk and Opportunity: Managing Risk for Development" and a companion report "Hardship and Vulnerability in the Pacific". It will discuss the solid empirical evidence of hardship, vulnerability to shocks, and risk management in the Pacific region and how this compares to countries in other regions; and provoke a debate on the responses governments and stakeholders in the region should take to help households manage risks to their well being.
