Knowledge Note

Following repeated cyclones and heavy flooding, the government of Seychelles renewed its efforts to increase resilience to natural disasters. Tropical Cyclone Felleng battered this multi-island country in the Indian Ocean with heavy rain in January 2013, and, following this disaster, the government worked to assess the damages and ensure that recovery efforts mitigated the effects of future natural hazards. It did so with support from the World Bank and the African Caribbean Pacific- European Union Natural Disaster Risk Reduction (ACP-EU NDRR) Program, an initiative managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR).
