The Southwest Indian Ocean Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative (SWIO RAFI) seeks to provide a solid basis for the future implementation of disaster risk financing through the improved understanding of disaster risks to participating island nations.SWIO RAFI complimented the ongoing work of the IOC to reduce vulnerability to natural disasters in accordance with the Mauritius Strategy for the Further Implementation of the Program of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States

This report was drafted by a working group of United Nations entities, the world Bank, and other stakeholders to suggest a common understanding of the blue economy; to highlight the importance of such an approach, particularly for small island developing states and coastal least developed countries; to identify some of the key challenges its adoption poses; and to suggest some broad next steps that are called for in order to ensure its implementation.

This report, which was commissioned and financed by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM), is devoted to current and potential future measures to mitigate the impacts of marine plastic litter on the ocean environment.It is meant to be used as a background report for Swedish actors at the high-level UN Ocean Conference that will convene at the UN Headquarters in New York in June 2017.

The current AIDI covers the latest data collected by the Bank over the period 2000-2013 under the infrastructure statistics component of its Statistical Capacity Building program in African countries.

State indicators, e.g., mean size and trophic level of the fish assemblage, can provide important insights into the effects of fishing on ecosystems and the resource potential of the fishery. On coral reefs, few
studies have examined the relative effects of fishing and other drivers, such as habitat, on these indicators. In light of habitat heterogeneity and increasing habitat degradation, this lack of understanding limits the usefulness of indicators for monitoring the effect of fishery management actions.
