Sudden-onset hazards and the risk of future displacement in Fiji

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

This technical paper represents initial results assessing the risk of disaster displacement in Fiji. IDMC has used its global internal displacement database to look at future displacement risk associated with sudden-onset hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclonic winds and storm surges. This analysis considered a wide range of possible hazard scenarios, their likelihood and their potential to cause housing damage.

The paper acknowledges that displacement associated with climate change and disasters in the country happens to communities, households and individuals and response is not state-led. It also recognises that while displacement based on Fiji's Displacement Guidelines is distinct from planned relocation and evacuation, there are clear indicators that the group of people affected by both processes intersect.
