Government has begun a review of the Fiji Meteorological Services (FMS) as part of its overall public sector reform process.
Following a public call for tenders Nadraki Weather, in partnership with independent consultants Atu Kaloumaira and Bikenibeu Paeniu, have been selected to undertake this review.
The review began on Monday and will end on June 18 and will consider past reviews of FMS as well as look at present and future needs for weather and climate services.
A government statement said the review would also provide them with recommendations for an optimal organisational structural path for the dual provisions of weather and climate services in Fiji into the future. The review will consider FMS's regional responsibilities, and will incorporate the views of all stakeholders both locally and around the region.
The government is also welcoming constructive input from the public and has invited citizens and business investors in Fiji with an interest in weather services to provide written submissions to Mr Kaloumaira and Mr Paeniu, with submissions to reach them before June 10.
The review report will be presented to the government after June 18.
