Fiji disaster management reference handbook
This handbook focuses on Fiji's disaster management framework and disaster risk reduction strategies. It provides an overview of the country's government, geography, demographics, socio-cultural practices, and history of disasters. This handbook is intended to serve as an initial source of information for individuals preparing for disaster management, response, and risk reduction activities or immediate deployment with Fiji partner responders in a crisis.
Fiji plays a key role in the Pacific not only as a hub for commerce but also as a host for international organizations that conduct programs and operations in Oceania. The country has proven to be and will remain a key location and partner for disaster management activities throughout the region. Because of its exposure to various recurring hazards, Fiji has steadily built its disaster management capacity, and it has shown increasing to respond both at home and elsewhere, including in Australia, New Zealand, and Tonga.
