Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) today opened an office in Suva with the aim of establishing a solid presence to support and contribute to the implementation of the Fiji Government’s green growth strategy.
Global Green Growth Institute, is an International Organization accelerating the transition toward a new model of economic growth – green growth – founded on principles of social inclusivity and environmental sustainability.
GGGI Director East Asia & Pacific Dr Imran Habib Ahman says they plan to transform economic activity in Fiji to improve efficiency and the sustainable management of natural resources.
“Fiji has taken a strong lead in promoting green growth as the centrepiece of its development strategy for the future. While many Pacific countries have included sustainability in their National plans and strategies, Fiji is the first to adopt a new development paradigm that puts sustainability and Green Growth at the forefront. This could become a best practice model for other Pacific Countries.’
The Institute currently has twenty-four member states and Fiji is one of four Pacific Island member states.
The others are Papua New Guniea, Kiribati and Vanuatu
Their office is located on the 8th floor of Ro Lalabalavu House in Suva.
