Title: Uncertain belongings : relationships, money and returned migrant workers in Port Vila, Vanuatu

Author: Cummings, Margaret
Subject:  Migration
 Recognised Seasonal Employer
Volume: Vol.35 no.3, 2016
Collation: p. 21-33

Abstract: New Zealand’s Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme allows Pacific islanders, including many from Vanuatu, to migrate as temporary agricultural labourers. For government stakeholders, the program’s success can be measured, in no uncertain terms, by the increased consumption of foreign goods and community development projects funded by returned migrants. Yet it is precisely in these terms, of new belongings and one’s sense of belonging, that returnees, especially young men, experience the greatest uncertainty. How should they use the money they earn overseas: to strengthen their kinship networks and communities by sharing their wealth, or to purchase clothes, stereos, cars, or even land, which will belong only to them as individuals? Each strategy has its potential promises and pitfalls, and the outcomes remain uncertain. Will workers who spend on belongings alienate themselves from their kin and island communities? And how might they be forging new kinds of belonging as young urban wage earners? In addition to exploring these questions, this paper suggests that these strategies might inform and inspire relevant policy that is able to better grapple with the very uncertainties the RSE helps to create.

Title: Urban service delivery and regional cooperation in the Pacific Island countries : challenges and opportunities

Author: Mohanty, Manoranjan
Subject:  Urbanisation
 Regional cooperation for development
Volume: Vol.31 no.1, 2011
Collation: p. 59-78

Abstract: This article focuses on urbanisation and urban service delivery challenges in the Pacific Island countries (PICs) and the need for regional cooperation on urban issues. With increasing urbanisation, the demand for urban infrastructure and services is growing manifold. National and local authorities find it difficult to cope with the urban service delivery problems. While many urban issues are regional challenges, others are sub-regional or city-specific. Effective regional cooperation is sought to address key urban challenges through collaborative efforts and sharing of experiences and best practices amongst the PICs. The paper explores regional cooperation initiatives on urban issues and provides a framework for regional cooperation in service delivery that may help in achieving MDGs, and the goals of sustainable urban development and the Pacific Plan.

Title: The value of historical ecology in planning for sustainable livelihoods : a Kiribati case study

Author: Thomas, Frank R.
Subject:  Sustainable development
 Sustainable living
 Landscape changes|Research
Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 131-146

Abstract: The precariousness of human existence on atolls, both past and present, is apparent when one examines the close linkages between communities and their environment. There have been few applications of Historical Ecology, the transdisciplinary study of how human societies and the ‘natural’ environment interact and transform each other through time, on atolls and other coral islands, particularly for the period preceding Western contact. Kiribati provides examples of communities that did not endure, as well as others that were sustainable for some 2,000 years. Knowledge of ecological complexity over centuries and millennia is a critical first step in the process of identifying the causes of environmental change and devising realistic methods for managing scarce atoll resources, as well as assessing the effectiveness of traditional adaption strategies in contemporary settings

Title: Values education : hope for a better future in the Pacific region

Author: Lingam, Govinda Ishwar
Subject:  Moral education
Volume: Vol.31 no.2, 2011
Collation: p. 211-210

Abstract: In recent times, there has been an unprecedented increase in the incidence of violence and conflicts around the world. The Pacific region is no exception. Often referred to as a paradise, some island countries have in recent years experienced unrest that has caused huge economic damage and claimed lives. This paper emphasises the need for the education system to respond to these trends in the region. It advocates the teaching and learning of values in schools as a strategy for achieving long-term harmony in the Pacific. The transfer of values in everyday lives requires reorienting the school curriculum to ensure emphasis on education using school-wide approaches.
