Fiji village relocated following disasters

A Fiji village that was battered by a landslide in 2012, slammed by that year's Cyclone Evan and then again by Cyclone Winston, is being relocated. A ground breaking ceremony is being held today at the relocated site of Tuturaki village which was destroyed by the triple disasters. Tuturaki was inland from Lautoka on Viti Levu and is being moved further into the island's interior. The initiative of Fiji's National Disaster Management Office will cost $US289,000 dollars and is being implemented by the Pacific Community. The European Union has also backed the project. It is the first community in the Western Division to be relocated as part of the programme to strengthen resilience to disaster for the people of Fiji.
