WORK will begin soon on the relocation of flood-prone villages in Nadroga, says Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki.
The first village earmarked will be Narata on the Sigatoka River east bank.
"These are villages which often fall victim to weather conditions and also disappearing banks and soil due to the river," he said.
"There are also other villages eyed to be relocated in the future."
Speaking at the Nadroga Navosa Provincial Council meeting on Friday, he said climate change was a fact of life and was happening everywhere.
He said sea level and river levels would continue to rise.
Cdr Cawaki referred to Vunidogoloa Village on Vanua Levu which was relocated by the government last year because of rising river levels.
