National Stakeholder Meeting on Protected Areas in Fiji

12 June 2008 | News story

On 12 June, the IUCN Regional Office for Oceania hosted a national stakeholder meeting on protected areas for Fiji.

The meeting brought together government agencies and non-government organisations to discuss ongoing efforts to establish and effectively manage a national protected areas network, and to seek stakeholders’ views on the establishment of a national protected areas committee. The meeting was well attended, with representatives from government agencies, non-government organisations and the private sector. Participants supported the establishment of a national protected areas committee, and IUCN is now working with its member organisations to seek endorsement of this proposal from the National Environment Council.
