Alignment of Fiji’s Revised Forest Bill with Draft Climate Change Bill

Country: Fiji (Republic of)

Phase: 2

Status: Completed

Related Strategic Priority Outcomes: Improved NDC planning, policy, strategy and legislation

Summary of Activity:

The NDC Hub is supporting Fiji to align its revised Forest Bill with its draft Climate Change Bill. A comprehensive and specific set of recommendations to better align the two Bills will be developed ensuring consistency of definitions, processes, institutional arrangements, and responsibility.

The primary purpose of the Climate Change Bill is to implement Fiji’s international commitments and obligations to reduce its carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. 

Hence, this support to national planning and legislation will be particularly valuable for Fiji to achieve its NDC targets, especially in the context of carbon markets.
