Fiji is an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean consisting of 332 islands of which 110 are permanently inhabited. The population is around 850,000.

The islands came into existence due to volcanic activity, therefore most of the land is mountainous. Nevertheless, Fiji is affected by rising sea levels and coastal erosion is widespread. Beaches are disappearing and a number of towns and villages will need to be evacuated to higher grounds.

Low-lying countries like Tuvalu and Kiribati are looking at the possibility of evacuating their people to Fiji. The government of Kiribati has recently purchased 6000 acres of land from the Anglican church. Officially this will be used to grow crops for the people of Kiribati, but could in the future very well be the area where Kiribati will relocate to.
