Abstract: A crucial aspect of development and people’s well-being is the security of their livelihoods. In developing countries rural households to an increasing extent depend on a wide range of assets and activities to form viable livelihoods. In Lobau village, which has been the place where fieldwork was carried out in Fiji, mobility and migration is an increasingly crucial strategy of rural households to earn a living. In the reality of a rural settlement livelihood security enhanced through mobility varies from household to household depending on a big number of factors such as socio-economic status, education and local knowledge, ethnicity, and stage in the household life cycle (Wagayehu 2004).
