A Sweden-based human rights institute says it's impressed by Vanuatu's approach to displacement in the context of disasters and climate change.  

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law was in Vanuatu last month as part of a 10 country study across the Asia Pacific.

The institute's Mathew Scott told Don Wiseman the Vanuatu's National Policy on Climate Change and Disaster-Induced Displacement makes the country stand out.
