Preliminary benefit cost analysis of storm surge hazard mitigation in the Tuamotu Islands, French Polynesia
In order to assist Pacific overseas countries and territories (OCTs) develop resilience to natural hazards, the European Union (EU) has commissioned the SOPAC Division of the SPC to work alongside OCTs to increase the protection and management of the coastal environment. The project, which falls under the European Development Fund (EDF) 9 C Envelope, will focus on the analysis, development and efficient implementation of the disaster risk solutions in Wallis and Futuna, New Caledonia, the Pitcairn Islands and French Polynesia. This document forms part of the work undertaken for French Polynesia. Specifically, this document provides a preliminary benefit cost analysis of different adaptation options for the Government of French Polynesia to combat coastal flooding in Rangiroa, in the Tuamotu Archipelago.
