The Fijian Government, with the support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), developed the Planned Relocation Guidelines to assist and guide relocation efforts at the local level. By doing so, Fiji is one of the first nation States to develop a national framework that guides the relocation process. The Guidelines serve to demonstrate the Fijian Government’s commitment to effectively respond to the need for relocation related to climate change, drawing from the latest developments in the area of human mobility, the latest scientific findings, and assessments and studies carried out in the country. It is anticipated that the Guidelines will also accelerate Fiji’s progress in meeting its Sustainable Development Goals and other national, regional and global commitments. This document does not exist on its own, but aligns with the provisions of Fiji’s 5-Year and 20-Year National Development Plan, Fiji’s National Adaptation Plan, the National Climate Change Policy and other relevant national, regional and international frameworks
