ClimateTOK

LOCATION: Suva, Fiji

Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is a Fijian organization supporting communities across the country in developing tangible policy solutions that address loss and damage and climate-forced displacement through human rights and community-informed approaches. It does climate crisis education work with rural communities and is the only non-government organization in Fiji that provides a space for community representatives to discuss loss and damage financing and relocation issues since 2019. 

A few projects Fiji Women’s Rights Movement is working on are: 

  • Providing a water tank in a local village;
  • Repairing the seawalls and building footpaths in several villages;
  • Installing solar lights for three villages;
  • Relocating two villages;
  • Repairing infrastructure and homes damaged by climate change;
  • Upgrading the Vunidogoloa Village into a national heritage site; abd
  • Recording Indigenous/traditional knowledge, wisdom, and practices for building climate adaptation and resilience.
