IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Vanuatu is made up of 83 islands in the South Pacific, Melanesian region. Vanuatu has three official languages: Bislama, English and French, as well as more than 100 local languages from the different islands. According to the 2018 WorldRiskReport, Vanuatu is the most at-risk country for natural disasters worldwide, which is indicative of the level of exposure to extreme natural events such as cyclones, earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions, as well as the capacity to respond and cope to impacts from natural disasters and climate change. In 2015, Vanuatu experienced a devastating category 5 Tropical Cyclone, referred to as Cyclone Pam, which passed close to the capital Port Vila. Cyclone Pam affected over 188,000 people, which is more half of the national population, destroying 95% of food crops in affected areas and damaging or destroying more than 70% of health facilities and 50% of schools (World Vision).
