Over ninety thousand people that have been mapped are being internally displaced in PNG.
There are many factors contributing to these displacements and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has uncovered 14 factors.
Some of these factors are tribal fighting, natural disasters, climate change and conflicts of land ownership.
Tribal fighting is common in the Highlands region of Papua New Guinea while harmful effects of climate can be seen in shores of seaside regions being washed away.
The IOM in PNG is working in collaboration with the government to formulate a policy on Internally Displaced People (IDPs) on how the government can prepare land for possible resettlement of people who are affected by the identified driving forces of displacement.
