FIJI Water has also been working with Conservation International on a large-scale reforestation project in Fiji to restore a total of 2,800 acres of degraded grasslands on the island of Viti Levu. Aside from long-term environmental benefits, this project will also create jobs and income for local communities. The planting of native tree seedlings will prevent soil erosion, provide watershed protection and expand critical habitats for endangered species, while the planting of hardwood timber like teak and mahogany, as well as sandalwood species, will generate future income sources for local communities.

Project Results

Long-term environmental benefits and job creation for local communities.
