Whats the problem

The islands of Fiji are unique, beautiful and share the Pacific ocean with Australia. Sea level rise, increasing intensity of tropical cyclones and land management practices all contribute to increased threat to local livelihoods.

What’s the solution

Evidentiary provides research information and small scale funds for environmental projects to be undertaken by local staff working in the Mamanuca Islands in western Fiji. Projects include upgrading bushwalking track facilities and signage, promoting environmental awareness, energy efficiency programs and measures for further fund raising on Castaway Island.

Why it’s important

Local knowledge and skills are vital to manage environmental works. Funding is often limited to undertake activities such as environmental awareness and energy saving initiatives for tourists. Together with on-ground restoration, significant improvements can be made to environmental quality and maintaining local livelihoods.
