Tuvalu has been working to understand the lessons learned from its most recent disaster response after Cyclone Pam hit the island nation in 2015. Significant lessons and recommendations have been focused on within the BSRP project as a result of this disaster to ensure increase support and response in times of need. To apply these recommendations, communications support has been strengthened with access to computers, radio systems, and laptops for the island committees to ensure timely flow of information. Supply shelters housing critical disaster response materils have also been created in partnership with Tuvalu Red Cross and will ensure access to shelter and critical WASH, first aid supplies and food rations for 1,200 people in future disaster response. Understanding traditional knowledge of disaster and ensuring this is embedded into the scientific approaches of today has also been researched with continued work expected on this over the duration of the project.
