Support to setting up and managing protected areas


  • Setting up and managing protected areas was part of RESCCUE’s strategy to strengthen integrated coastal management and climate-change resilience.
  • The project helped set up two new land and marine protected areas in Fiji and New Caledonia covering a total of over 1,300 sq. km.
  • RESCCUE also strengthened management of several dozen provincial and local protected areas enjoying official or community status across all the pilot sites. It assisted with strengthening a network of 13 protected areas in the Great South of New Caledonia.
  • The project examined six types of funding mechanisms for protected areas, two of which were implemented: the North Efate conservation fund in Vanuatu, which is funding locally managed marine areas, and a marine conservation agreement for the Vatu-i-Ra Marine Conservation Park in Fiji.
