BUILDING CLIMATE RESILIENCE WITH SMALL ISLAND NATIONS

IPP COMMONSENSING

IPP CommonSensing is an innovative international project based on a partnership between Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, and a consortium of international partners, working together to support and build climate resilience and enhance decision making through the use of satellite remote sensing technology.

The Solomon Islands are expected to incur, on average, 20.5 million USD per year in losses due to earthquakes and tropical cyclones. In the next 50 years, the Solomon Islands have a 50% chance of experiencing a loss exceeding 240 million USD and casualties larger than 1,650 people, and a 10% chance of experiencing a loss exceeding 527 million USD and casualties larger than 4,600 people.
