Plan to relocate village

Mere Naleba
Wednesday, April 02, 2014

THE Prime Minister has instructed his team to monitor and follow up on the possible relocation program for Ogea Village on Ogea Island.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama told the villagers there were only two things that should be at the top of their list in their five-year development plan — the impacts of climate change on Ogea and shipping services to the island.

The Prime Minister said it was important for the islanders to understand and prioritise the possible relocation of the village or other solutions that could become options for the government to take because of the rising sea level because of climate change.

He said he wanted to find a solution to these two issues.

The Prime Minister said the possible relocation or the project to reclaim pieces of land in the village was a priority for the government.

He said knowing that lives were at risk was quite disturbing and that the office of the Commissioner Eastern should fast-track a plan under which survey work would need to be conducted before the end of the year.
