Given that Fiji was listed in a 2014 UN World Risk Report as one of the 15 most exposed countries to natural hazards, the ministry continues to ensure consistent development in the agriculture sector.
Implementing a disaster resilient plan where Fiji builds back stronger is a priority in this three-year project.
“Disasters will always be there and will be part of our society, unfortunately it is something that we cannot avoid. But something we can do – is to prepare well, prepare better for the future,” Minister for Agriculture Inia Seruiratu said.
“Not only in terms of our development programme, but most importantly in post disaster when we deal with recovery as well.”
In order to be effective and correctly identifying the risks that are involved is vital.
