Infrastructure resilience and building standards in Pacific island countries

Developing a regional approach

PRIF is supporting a regional diagnostic study of constraints in the application of building codes and standards in the Pacific.

• A regional and coordinated approach is proposed to raise awareness on the importance of building standards as well as a road map for strengthening capacity of government agencies.

• Building standards complement donor support to ‘build-back-better’ and other initiatives.
