Situation Overview

The Emergency Coordinator Osnat Lubrani and UNOCHA ROP Head of Office Sune Gudnitz today joined Fiji's Ambassador for Climate Change Amena Yauvoli in visiting the cyclone-hit islands of Koro in the Lomaiviti Group. The mission observed catastrophic damage to houses and other key infrastructure as a result of both the Cyclone and the tsunami-like storm surge that came with it. Key needs outlined by local officials include 200 tents for shelter to enable people to move out of crowded evacuation centres, safe drinking water, food, clothing, psycho-social support and debris clearance.

To prevent sexual exploitation and abuse, a Code of Conduct for humanitarian workers involved with all aspects of relief and response has been endorsed by the Safety and Protection Cluster and Permanent Secretaries of the line ministries.
