Women and Disability in the Context of Climate Mobility – Case Studies of Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu

Patrick Fong

Environmental change has been associated with human mobility over the years and climate change is starting to affect movement in new ways, now termed climate mobility. In this research brief, the effect of climate change on women and persons with disability in Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu is examined, with emphasis on human mobility. Results suggest that climate change is negatively affecting women and persons with disability and increasing their vulnerability to other socio-economic factors. They should, therefore, be a central element of strategies for climate change actions and policies. This requires a radical change in policy makers’ perceptions of migration as a problem and a better understanding of the role of local, national, regional and international institutions in supporting and accommodating climate mobility for persons with disability and women.
