Displacement Guidelines – In the Context of Climate Change and Disasters

The Fijian Government, with support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), has developed Fiji’s Displacement Guidelines. The Displacement Guidelines aim to reduce the vulnerabilities associated with displacement and consider durable solutions to prevent and minimise the drivers of displacement in affected communities in Fiji. Recognising that the displacement of people related to climate change and disasters is primarily not a state-led process, and concurrently acknowledging both the rising risk and trend of displaced persons in the context of climate change and disasters on the territory of Fiji, this document provides guidance for the Fijian Government and other non-state stakeholders present in Fiji to address and reduce vulnerabilities associated with displacement. It also provides guidance for considering sustainable solutions to prevent and minimise the drivers of displacement in the affected communities in relation to climate change and disaster-associated events occurring on the territory of Fiji.
