The joint Fiji and Vanuatu learning event held over 5 - 6 March 2020 in Suva, Fiji was a key action linked to the project ‘Operationalising Localisation and the Participation Revolution: Communications Preparedness and Accountability for Disaster Response in Fiji and Vanuatu’ – a project funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
The project seeks to operationalise the Grand Bargain participation revolution and localisation commitments through government-led preparedness platforms in countries where the majority of disasters are caused by natural hazards. It is jointly implemented by members of the national Communications Clusters, the National Disaster Management Offices (NDMO) and the Ministries of Information and Communication in Fiji and Vanuatu, in collaboration with the Communicating with Disaster Affected Communities (CDAC) Network and Ground Truth Solutions (GTS).
This document looks at key achievements to date, the benefits of the project, the challenges, and the opportunities and needs going forward.
