Relocation is easy but integration is a challenge: ILO

March 27, 2019 7:21 am

Relocating individuals that are displaced due to the impacts of climate change is not an issue, however – their integration into a new country can be.

International Labour Organization Director for the Pacific, Donglin Li says a strong supportive structure needs to be developed.

Li says there needs to be more focus around protection and empowerment.

“It is easy to relocate people or communities from one place to another, but we also need to consider have to provide a job, how to provide a training, how to provide social benefits and how to provide a place these refugees can operate their own businesses. Therefore, protection and empowerment of migrants and communities are vital.”

To walk the talk, a project aimed at addressing this issue was launched in Suva yesterday.

The joint project by six United Nations partners is known as Enhancing the Protection and Empowerment of Migrants and Communities Affected by Climate Change and Disasters in the Pacific Region project.

The project is aimed for Fiji, Vanuatu, Tuvalu, Kiribati, and Republic of the Marshall Islands.

It will run from this year till 2021.
