REDD+ Coordinator appointed

December 9, 2018 10:20 am
The new Permanent Secretary for Forestry, Pene Baleinabuli has appointed Viliame Rabici as the Coordinator for the REDD+ Unit within the Ministry

The new Permanent Secretary for Forestry, Pene Baleinabuli has appointed Viliame Rabici as the Coordinator for the REDD+ Unit within the Ministry.

The Unit deals with activities addressing the effects of climate change through the reduction of emissions from deforestation, forest degradation and conservation and the sustainable management of forests.

As coordinator, Rabici will ensure that the REDD+ Project is critically implemented within the next 24 months of Fiji’s REDD+ Readiness phase.

He will also ensure there is a smooth flow of communication and support between the relevant government agencies and other REDD+ stakeholders.

In 2015, the Fiji National REDD+ Programme received US$3.8 million from the FCPF to assist with readiness activities for 2015-2019 in order to receive carbon funding for its emissions reduction programme (ERP).

Further funding of $2 million was sought in 2017 to support more consultations and participation, institutional strengthening, capacity building, development and finalization of the National REDD+ Strategy, upgrading and further development of the Forest Reference Emission Level (FREL), a system for Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) and the establishment of the Safeguards Information System (SIS).

The additional funding will also support new activities that fall under the existing components like the proposal to carry out a study on invasive species and their impact on forest degradation, to build awareness on the forest harvest code, develop action plans for Fiji’s REDD+ Strategy that will determine how we address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation and to upgrade the forestry database system and establish a carbon registry.

This will also ensure that Fijians, in particular forest owners and forest users will be able to participate and make informed decisions about conserving their forests and sustainably managing them so that they are also contributing to reducing emissions into the earth’s atmosphere.
