Source(s): Radio New Zealand International

New Zealand's atmospheric science agency NIWA is predicting nine to 12 tropical cyclones in the Southwest Pacific basin by the end of April 2020.


World Vision's Vanuatu-based programme quality manager Chloe Morrison said the agency was working with villages to better prepare for and respond to disaster.


They were promoting a range of techniques to help protect livelihoods, including food security strategies.


"We have a project on Tanna Island, which is working with local communities and families, to re-engage in what were traditional food preservation practices that were used many years ago that allowed families to store food during times of disaster.
