The National Disaster Management Office is working on overcoming challenges faced by different stake holders when the largest cyclone in Fiji’s history slammed the Nation early this year.
Assistant Minister for National Disaster Management, Joeli Cawaki says the ministry is currently working in making improvements for the future as Tropical Cyclone Winston showed them a number of loopholes..
“The operation has come to an end and it is critical that we get together to review and discuss the lessons that we have learned during the whole operation. This is to look at what we had done well, what we didn’t do well and what can be improved before the next disaster operation.”
Head of Cooperation at the Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific- Christophe Wagner – says financially supporting the workshop will lead to real and tangible outcomes.
Wagner says the EU also has plans in place to help the agriculture sector.
He adds they are fully committed to help Fiji becoming more resilient to natural disasters.
