Fiji’s Ministry for Local Government, Urban Development, Housing and Environment this week signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for the implementation of the National Biodiversity Enabling Activity Project for the next two years.

The project which will see Fiji receiving $220,000 USD from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through UNDP aims to strengthen Fiji’s obligations and reporting requirements under the Convention of Biological Diversity.

The agreement was signed by the Ministry of Local Government permanent secretary Taina Tagicakibau. Also present at the signing were the Director for Environment, Jope Davetanivalu and Floyd Robinson representing the UNDP.

The project will be housed at the Department of Environment as the national operational focal point for the Convention of Biological Diversity.

“The project will end on 31 December and the signing of the new agreement paves the way forward for an extension of the work carried out by the project in the last three years. This is good news for Fiji because such partnership will lead to fulfillment of obligations under international convention of which Fiji is a party to,” said the Department of Environment director Davetanivalu.

This development comes days before the Eleventh Conference of Parties (COP 11) for the Convention of Biological Diversity which is due to begin soon in Hyderabad, India.

The Fijian delegation led by the Minister of Local Government Samuela Saumatua will leave the country for India this week for that meet.
