Fiji REDD-Plus Policy

The Fiji REDD-Plus policy aligns itself with the Forest Sector goal of sustainable forest management and also with the vision in the National Forest Policy 2007, broadly stated as: ‘Sustainable wellbeing and prosperity from diversified forests’, based on ‘the need to overcome the sector’s current focus on timber production and to widen the perspective to a balanced attention to the multiple economic, ecological and social values of Fiji’s forest resources’ covering the various thematic areas of sustainable forest management. The Fiji REDD-Plus policy, therefore, offers an additional excellent opportunity for Fiji to conserve its forests and at the same time benefit from the continued environmental services from the standing forests, including benefits through the conservation of its forest biodiversity.
