Ra and Kadavu Provinces – Fiji

The RESCCUE project in Fiji was implemented under the supervision of both SPC and the Fiji Government by the University of the South Pacific Institute of Applied Science, together with Landcare Research, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Conservation International and the Fiji Environmental Law Association (FELA). 

Activities ended early November 2018 with a participatory lessons learned workshop held in Suva and the last Fiji steering committee meeting. During the three years of project implementation in Fiji, two of the strongest tropical cyclones (TC) ever recorded in the South Pacific hit Fiji, with TC Winston devastating the Ra Province in 2016, and TC Keni causing considerable damage to Kadavu in 2018. Stakeholders highlighted that the RESCCUE project successfully adapted its activities to the cyclones’ impacts, while making impacted populations more resilient.

The final RESCCUE project report for Fiji provides an overview of all activities and outcomes at the Kadavu and Ra pilot sites. A synthesis is also accessible here.

RESCCUE developed its activities in Kadavu and Ra in an integrated coastal management and climate change resilience perspective. In line with its overall rationale, the project endeavored to reduce non-climate stressors on the ecosystems so as to increase their resilience as well as the resilience of communities depending on them. Activities were divided in six broad areas synergetic with one another.
