Vanuatu

National Policy on Climate Change and Disaster-Induced Displacement

Executive
Policy
DRM/DRR Framework
Passed in 2018
This document sets Vanuatu's strategy regarding displacements of populations. These displacements occur, either temporarily or permanently, because the people are no longer able to reside on the land on which they live or lose access to land and natural resources upon which their livelihoods depend. A major cause for disasters causing displacement identified in the document is climate change. 

The policy seeks to minimise the drivers of displacement, better understand the population's needs and wishes and take it into account, and promote access to disaster-resilient housing. It further identifies current policy gaps, and aims to optimise displacements so they can be more durable, through 1) sustainable return and reintegration at the place of origin, 2) sustainable local integration in areas where displaced persons have taken refuge, and 3) sustainable integration in another part of the country.
