Fiji - Housing

According to government estimates, Fiji requires more than 4,200 new houses each year to maintain adequate housing standards. Natural disasters such as cyclones and tropical storms have caused problems in creating and maintianing adequate housing stock.

The Fiji Housing Authority provides accommodations for urban workers and extends credit for houses it builds and sells. At last estimate, housing stock exceeded 126,000 units, of which 30% were made of corrugated iron or tin; 30% were concrete; more than 25% were wood; and nearly 10% were bure. The water supply was mostly either individually piped (53%), communally piped (20%), or obtained from wells (13%). Roughly 32% of all dwellings had private flush toilets while 42% used latrines, and 49% had electricity.

This was very useful information to me for a project i am doing on Fiji. I have to do a five to six page essay and a power point presentation and housing/shelter is one of my main points. Every other site i went to was had ads for houses for sale in Fiji. They were nice but no what I needed. Thank you So much. I think you should put up pictures of the housing in Fiji and mabye some information on the ceremonies and culture and other things about Fiji.
