Update: 1:03PM FIJI has the resources to respond to the effects of climate change positively.

This was the message of the iTaukei Affairs Board deputy CEO, Colonel Apakuki Kurusiga, at the first-ever iTaukei Affairs Boards conservation officer workshop at the Holiday Inn in Suva  this morning.

He said the board was charged under the iTaukei Affairs Act to oversee the good governance and the well-being of the iTaukei.

In line with these, the board recognises the task of conserving of our natural resources as a central priority for our organisation as significant to the indigenous communities we serve, Col Kurusiga said.

He said the conservation officers would  be on the ground co-ordinating with Roko Tui and provincial offices and interacting with impacted communities.
