See how Fiji is facing the full force of climate change
Tackling regional environmental, social, and economic sustainable development challenges
As the hub of our South Pacific region’s Small Island Developing States (SIDS), Fiji has taken a resolute approach to tackle regional environmental, social, and economic sustainable development challenges.
These challenges are aggravated by small but growing populations, limited resources, remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, vulnerability to external shocks, excessive dependence on international trade, and fragile environments.

As sea levels rise and weather events become increasingly frequent and intolerable for productivity; SIDS bear the full burden of climate change albeit being a de minimums emitter of carbon emissions. Coastal erosion and encroachment threaten food stability, ground water sources, and the very land of SIDS.
