This Down By The River report relays the priorities shared by Fijian sexual and gender minorities through their stories, and offers reflections from a workshop with Fijian disaster risk reduction (DRR) and humanitarian actors. It provides guidance for substantive steps toward inclusion of sexual and gender minorities in Distaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and humanitarian programs. As a result, it challenges government, organisations and individuals to interrogate underlying heteronormative, cisnormative and binary assumptions that exclude sexual and gender minorities, and that make specific inclusion measures necessary.
