The Climate Change and International Cooperation Division (CCICD) of the Ministry of Economy is the responsible national agency for addressing climate change policy issues in Fiji. The CCICD is guided by the Climate Change Act 2021 and the National Climate Change Policy (NCCP) and works in collaboration with government agencies, non-governmental organisations, regional and international agencies and development partners. This site is intended to be a central hub of information, data and reports about climate change in Fiji at large.

The Adaptation Section of the CCICD supports the inter-ministerial process relating to adaptation. This process includes activities relating to national climate change adaptation plans, adaptation registry, international reporting, climate mobility, communication & awareness, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.
The Oceans Section of the CCICD works with multiple stakeholders across the Government, Non-Government, and private sector agencies working in the marine space. The team targets that Fiji’s marine resources are sustainably managed and preserved against unmanageable practices. This includes implementing activities guided by the National Ocean Policy and the Climate Change Act. Key work areas include the blue economy, international reporting, ocean-climate nexus, UN Decade of Ocean Science, Marine Protected Areas, ocean accounts, ban on single-use plastics, ocean literacy and advocacy and ocean governance.
