PRiMO 2020 Call for Proposals: Building a Resilient Pacific
Call for Session Proposals
The Pacific Risk Management ‘Ohana (PRiMO) Conference
Building A Resilient Pacific
March 10-13th, 2020
Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawai’i

PRiMO is a coalition of organizations with a role in hazard and climate risk management in the Pacific region. We recognize the value of collective action and are committed to enhancing cooperation, coordination, and collaboration to strengthen and sustain resilient island communities. PRiMO welcomes all stakeholders working to build resilient island communities to submit session proposals by Tuesday, November 12th, 2019.

Pacific Islands are not only connected by our ocean geography, ocean resources, and cultures, but also by our shared risks. The impacts of typhoons, tsunamis, rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and ocean acidification are both local and regional. PRiMO’s 2020 conference is meant to strengthen collective action toward building resilience across the region. We will reflect on our individual and collective ability to recover from and cope with recent impacts. We will explore solutions to better prepare for future events in ways that leverage advances in science and technology and that reflect the culture and values of the Pacific.

Suggested session topics include, but are not limited to:

- Precovery: Pre-disaster Recovery Planning and Preparedness
- Resilient Communities: Housing, Infrastructure, Planning, and Mitigation
- Next Generation Technology: Satellites, Modeling, and Decision Support Tools
- Community Perspectives: Place-based and Traditional Knowledge
