2 Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission Vanuatu Events In the past 26 years Vanuatu experienced 52 events; 25 Hurricanes 21 events as a result of Volcanic activity 3 Earthquakes 3 Gales

3 Why track investment in DRM Establish a baseline Facilitate cost benefit analysis of DRR measures Determine priority areas for future expenditure In recognition that disasters are a development issue

4 Vanuatu – potential losses remains on current growth path averaging 5.5% pa. possible reduction in rate of growth No growth

5 MFEM Involvement in DRM Attend NAP Task Force meetings Attend the National Disaster Committee meeting post event Authorise any post disaster supplementary expenditure Manage the VT25 million Disaster Fund Adhere to the rules and regulations of theSTANDING APPROPRIATION FOR A DECLARED STATE OF EMERGENCY OR A FINANCIAL EMERGENCY article 34C (1)PFEM Act

6 Budget Circular Regulation 2.2 Report is released Budget Timetable MBC + COM endorse ceilings VBMS open for entry DRM-DRR be allocated via recurrent distribution or NPP (if not yet done so). Detail and justification is essential

7 NDMO Budget Allocation

8 NDMO Annual Budget

9 Disaster Fund VT 25 million for disaster purposes Simple process to attain funds Initial Disaster report provided Prioritise essentials Provide costing Letter of request to disburse funds DOFT verify documents Payment facilitated ASAP

10 Supplementary Fund Up to a maximum of 1.5% of the total budget can be disbursed to respond to an unforseen emergency (whether related to a natural disaster or a financial emergency) 2008 VT20 million (TC Gene) 2009 VT110 million (several disasters) 2011 VT35.5 million (TC Vania) 2011 VT63.6 million (School fee exemption due to TC Vania)

11 Difficulties tracking DRM investments National Budgets track high level expenditure Appropriations to Departments are usually to cover recurrent costs such as wages and salaries rather than project based funding DRM expenditures are cross-cutting and therefore difficult to track through the budget at the sectoral level Unless donors direct their expenditures on DRM through MFEM there is no way to track the investment in country

12 The way forward… Introduce a risk assessment in to the budgetary/planning process Increase the use of the NAP to request/guide donors to expenditure areas with the greatest need (budget support) Consider the use of financial tools to establish a DRR fund to coexist with the Disaster Relief Fund
