The Fiji National REDD+ Programme came about in 2009. It aims to implement the National REDD+ Policy. The Fiji REDD+ Policy has the overall objective of enhancing the national forest-based carbon balance by:
- Supporting and strengthening initiatives that address the drivers of forest-based carbon emissions
- Encouraging the drivers of forest-based carbon sinks
The implementation of the National REDD+ Programme is overseen by the National REDD+ Steering Committee, a multi-sectoral and inter-agency committee with decision making capacities and technical expertise in various fields.
