VUNIDOGOLOA Village will be relocated three kilometres inland as a result of the rising sea level.
The village is currently located between the two tikina of Navatu and Koroalau near the Tabia River in Vanua Levu.
Roko Tui Cakaudrove Ro Aca Mataitini said the village had been severely affected by sea level rise and they were looking at a long-term solution.
"The rising water level is a serious problem for the people and we want to move them," Ro Aca said.
Cakadrove provincial administrator Uraia Rainima told The Fiji Times they were clearing a new site and logging timber to build houses.
"We are preparing the new site, which is close to the Saqani main road, to relocate 30 families," Mr Rainima said.
He said the whole village was flooded during recent torrential rain all over the country.
"When the high tide coincides with big waves and water from the Tabia River, the whole village gets flooded," he said.
He said they would carry out income-generating activities to meet the needs of relocated families.
These activities included rice farming, aquaculture, cattle rearing and pineapple farming.
Mr Rainima said their target was to relocate the families by August this year.
