    Abstract In 1997-98 the most intense El Niño of the 20th century occurred. It prompted the UNFIP to support 16 country case studies to document El Niño’s societal impacts. These countries were affected in a variety of ways by the 1997-98 event. The overriding objective of these case studies has been to determine how countries affected by either of ENSO’s extremes can be better assisted through improved use of El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts. Fiji is very grateful to have been selected, along with Papua New Guinea (PNG), as the two island countries to represent the Pacific island countries (PICs). In September 1999 UNEP concluded a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement with the South Pacific Applied GeoScience Commission (SOPAC) to undertake the Fiji case study. Immediately following this, the Fiji government endorsed the undertaking of the Fiji case study project. This endorsement facilitated the access of our research team to government information and the release of civil servants to be Team members.
