Allegations that Fiji Floods have a man made element

Three floods in three years have destroyed or severely damaged homes and businesses in Nadi, Fiji’s third largest town.

Graham Davis reports these repeated disasters are being  “regarded as no coincidence”.

Davis says that developments upstream and downstream are contributing to the severity of the flooding problem.

“In truth, the town has always sat on a flood plain,” he says,  “yet flood waters have only reached the commercial centre once in a decade at most. But three times in three years and with such ferocity?”
