The objective of the Second Phase of Pacific Resilience Projects in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) is to strengthen early warning systems, climate resilient investments in shoreline protection, and to provide immediate and effective response to an eligible crisis or emergency. There are four components to the project, the first component being institutional strengthening, early warning and preparedness. Component one has two sub‐components: (i) institutional strengthening, central agency capacity building in risk governance, early warning, and modernization of the NDMO’s facilities (which will be implemented by RMI); and (ii) NDMO capacity building, and post disaster needs assessment (which will be implemented by the SPC). The second component is the strengthening coastal resilience. Component two is divided into two sub‐components: (a) coastal vulnerability assessment and protection investments (which will be implemented by RMI); and (b) strengthening coastal risk planning (which will be implemented by SPC). The third component is the contingency emergency response. This government‐led component will include carrying out a program of activities designed to provide rapid response to an eligible crisis or emergency, as needed. This Contingency Emergency Response Component (CERC) may be used following the declaration of a disaster event. The CERC will complement the PCRAFI disaster insurance mechanism financed under PREP Phase I and will strengthen the emergency preparedness and immediate response capacity of RMI for low‐ and medium‐scale disasters or disasters that are not covered by the PCRAFI insurance scheme (e.g. flood, drought). Finally, the fourth component is the project and program management. Component 4 is divided into two sub‐components: (1) project Management (which will be implemented by RMI); and (2) program management (which will be implemented by ?).
