Fiji REDD-plus Policy

The Fiji REDD-Plus Policy was endorsed by the Fiji Cabinet on 07 December 2010 and officially launched by the Fiji Permanent Secretary of Fisheries and Forests, Mr Viliame Naupoto, on Wednesday 09 March 2011.

Fiji recognises REDD-Plus as an opportunity to contribute towards global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen the socio-economic status of its forest resource owners and protect its forest ecosystems. With the increasing interest in REDD-Plus, the policy is very timely as it provides a national framework for implementation to interested REDD project developers.
