    Recognizing these critical needs, the World Bank provided an opportunity for targeted resilient development and engaged with three PICs; Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI), Tonga, Samoa and two regional organizations; the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat and the Pacific Community (SPC) to implement the Pacific Resilience Program (PREP).
