The risk of disaster-induced displacement: South Pacific island states - technical paper

Source(s):  Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC)

This paper assesses the risk of disaster-induced displacement in 21 island states in the South Pacific. It presents results from the second of five planned analyses which correspond with the regional consultations of the Nansen Initiative, a state-led process that brings together representatives from governments, international organisations, civil society, think tanks and other key actors to develop a protection agenda for people displaced across state borders by disasters and the effects of climate change.

The study reflects emerging awareness of the need to see disasters as primarily social, rather than natural, phenomena. This acknowledges the fact that humans can act and take decisions to reduce the likelihood of a disaster occurring or, at the very least, to reduce their impacts and the levels of loss and damage associated with them.
