Federated States of Micronesia strengthens post disaster needs

The cost of disaster is critical in determining the support and impact on countries and the Federated States of Micronesia has been struggling to determine the full cost of Typhoons Maysak and Dolphin in 2015 and the recent crippling drought. To support this process, a Post Disasters Needs Assessment training is being conducted for disaster experts from the four states of FSM — Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap. The training which begins today in Colonia, Yap, is supported by the Pacific Community or SPC and the European Union through the ACP-EU Building Safety and Resilience in the Pacific project. Widely accepted as the international standard, Post Disaster Needs Assessments are comprehensive assessments that reveal the true cost of disasters by identifying all the impacts and calculating the cost of the damage and associated losses. The week-long training aims to strengthen the country’s ability to improve reporting on the impact of future disasters whilst helping to develop critical data to inform the identification of long term recovery, reconstruction needs and ways to mitigate future hazards. In supporting the training, FSM’s Director of Office Environment and Emergency Management, Andrew Yatilman, stated that FSM should be in a better position to fully present the impacts of disasters throughout the islands which has been a challenge in the past.
