The South Pacific Tourism office and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature today signed a Memorandum of understanding to pursue greener and environmentally sustainable efforts for the Fiji Islands.

In signing the agreement, SPTO chief executive officer Ilisoni Vuidreketi said the Economic importance of tourism could not be underestimated.

He said tourism was an industry that was extremely resilient and could rise to meet economic difficulties.

Vuidreketi said this new partnership would enable both partners to share resources as well as expertise towards addressing the issue of sustainable management of tourism developments with the focus of adding value and benefits to the tourism private sector.

“Tourism depends on healthy natural environment and this partnership will allow us to ensure that we take the right steps towards protecting and preserving our island environments, which provide the resource base for our tourism attractions and products,” said Vuidreketi.

Regional Director for IUCN Oceania Regional Office, Taholo Kami added that with a growing climate aware market, a healthy environment would be the key to drawing visitors.

Kami referred to the conservation of the upper part of the Navua River as an example.

“Tourists love the pristine waters, so do the communities who receive some payment to conserve this special catchment. Tourists benefit, the communities conserve their environment and get some funds for their needs, we all win, the partnership makes sense” said Kami
