Carteret resettlement may hold lessons for Pacific

RADIO AUSTRALIA PACIFIC BEAT Updated October 6, 2011 18:01:27

With warnings about unsustainable numbers of people on low lying atolls and the possibility of having to resettle them elsewhere, is there anything to be learned from a resettlement scheme which is already happening in the Pacific? The Carteret islands north of the Papua New Guinea Island of Bougnainville are atolls which are sinking slowly. There's a plan to resettle many of the 2,700 inhabitants on the mainland of Bougnainville which aims at having 1,700 of them transplanted within ten years.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
Speaker: Ursula Rakova, executive director of the aid charity Tulele Peisa

I hope they study the Banaban resettlement which was  a forced removal from the homeland but the issues on resettling in a foreign land need to really addressed properly and especially for the future generations to come and future lost of identity.
