Display Date: 2/6/13

The BBC website reported on the Tsunami which hit the Solomon Islands yesterday, damaging homes in four villages, and killing four people.

Read the report here.

IFAD has been working to increase the resilience of the Solomon Island people in the face of natural disasters, as may be seen in these two documents (see below) discussing the project funded through the Indigenous Peoples Assistance Facility.

It will be interesting to see the results of the deliberations at next week's first Indigenous Peoples Forum at IFAD, and the extent to which natural disasters are highlighted and addressed.
