"Australia is committed to helping Fiji prepare for and respond to natural disasters," asserts the Australian High Commission in the Fiji Times. The article describes Australia's work with the Fiji National Disaster Management Office and the Fiji Council of Churches to help make local communities more resilient and better prepared for natural disasters. So far the program has helped over 140 vulnerable communities to develop their own disaster response plans suiting their own unique needs, such as responding to floods or a tsunami early warning system.
