Rapid drift to urban areas across the Pacific

Updated July 29, 2011 16:31:54

A Pacific based policy thinktank has released a new report showing that Pacific island populations are becoming more urbanised.

The briefing paper from the Pacific Institute of Public Policy, shows that, as many have long suspected, just like in countries like Australia the USA and in Europe, more and more people are leaving farms and provincial areas, in search of the opportunities they believe exist in big cities and towns.

It says the island governments must stop pretending that urban drift is not a problem.

Communications Officer with the Institute Talita Tui'pulotu was in charge of this project and as she says, just like in the rest of the world, it's the young people who are leading the charge away from the farms.

Presenter: Pacific Correspondent Campbell Cooney
Speaker: Talita Tui'pulotu, Communications Officer with the Institute
