The displacement of the people from the islands under threat has serious implications in terms of their well-being and development. The displaced people are most likely to slide into poverty, unless they are provided the necessary support in terms of resettlement and livelihoods. A long- term framework / plan needs to be developed which can suggest resettlement options for island populations under threat. At the same time, a recovery strategy needs to be formulated for the people who have been displaced.
The project seeks to address these issues with a consultancy assignment which will address the issue of displacement, and consider how such people could be provided with recovery assistance.
