Vanuatu Business Resilience Council


Vanuatu Business Resilience Committee was launched on 6 July 2017 to help strengthen the private sector through:

  • Establishing a clear entry point for the private sector to participate and engage within the climate change and disaster risk reduction sectors
  • Providing a regular forum for dialogue and collaboration between the public and private sector, especially in regards to climate change issues, disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness, response and recovery
  • Raising awareness among the private sector about climate change and disaster risk management
  • Strengthening resilience of businesses, particularly small and medium enterprises through capacity building programs to help withstand and recover from shocks, including business continuity planning
  • Formalizing involvement within official national disaster management and climate change planning, policies and processes, helping strengthen the linkage and coordination between the public and private sector
  • Identification of private sector capabilities, interests and needs as it relates to climate change and disaster risk management, especially in accessing climate finance
  • Sharing of best practices and successful case studies, helping inform future Public Private Partnership initiatives
  • Assisting businesses in securing business continuity preparedness training and resources through appropriate climate finance resources, including through international organizations.
