Disaster Displacement: Papua New Guinea Country Briefing
SHARE THIS PAGE
This Papua New Guinea country briefing outlines why events such as floods and earthquakes force thousands from their homes each year and shows how data can improve assistance as climate vulnerability and low development raise disaster risk.
A copublication with the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, it explains why much displacement goes unreported, details its major causes, and assesses its impact on health, housing, livelihoods, and education. It explains how insufficient funding for disaster risk reduction and a lack of specific internal displacement policies affect response capacity and outlines how systematic data collection would support better prevention mechanisms.
