Thursday, December 12, 2013

WOMEN in the provinces of Bua and Macuata were part of the REDD-plus policy consultation with stakeholders at the Friendly North Inn last week.

The consultation, facilitated by the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs focused on addressing climate change through forest conservation.

Speaking at the opening of the three-day workshop last Wednesday, Ministry permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela said: "Involving women in this forum is important as most of those attending the workshop during this last three days own forest reserves where they hail from."

Soqosoqo Vakamarama national president Adi Finau Tabakaucoro said they supported the initiative.

The policy is aimed at reducing the 20 per cent of emissions related to forests through financial incentives.
