Humanitarian response for development in Fiji: lessons from Tropical Cyclone Winston

Keren Winterford, Anna Gero

Working paper, 36 pages

Linking humanitarian response and development is a key agenda driven by multiple factors across both humanitarian and development landscapes. It is also a topical issue in Fiji, a South Pacific Island nation which is exposed to natural hazards, particularly tropical cyclones. This research aims to learn from Fiji’s experience of Tropical Cyclone Winston in 2016. The research offers lessons for sub-national and national governments of Fiji, governments and donors in the Pacific region, and also beyond, on how humanitarian response (response and early recovery) has contributed – and can be strengthened to further contribute – to development goals in urban contexts.

Project information

Urban areas are increasingly the sites of humanitarian crises, from natural disasters to conflict and displacement. Through a programme of research, documenting and learning from experience and development of tools and approaches, IIED is working to build the knowledge and capacity to respond of humanitarian actors working in urban areas, and of urban actors facing humanitarian crises.
