Building Resilience in Small States - An IEG assessment

Many small states that have population less than 1.5 million people face severe risks from natural disasters because of their location, geography and size. Catastrophic events are a drag on development, both from direct damage and disruption, as well as due to the consequences of reconstruction debt. Watch this short presentation to learn what works and what should be done better to help small states to be more resilient to environmental risks and natural disasters. This short video presentation captures the main lessons learned from IEG's recent evaluation of World Bank Group's support to small states.

Considering very high vulnerability levels of the small states mentioned, sharing of best practices among such geographically remote areas is expected to help in improving resilience.
