THE iTaukei Affairs Board will work with other central government agencies and NGOs to mainstream issues of conserving Fiji's natural resources.

This means the board will work with stakeholders on their strategies and tactics, exchange information on the status of Fiji communities and their response to the conservation of Fiji's resources.

During the first iTaukei Affairs Board's conservation officers workshop in Suva, the board said these officers worked on the ground in co-ordination with the roko tui and provincial officers and interacted directly with impacted communities.

Deputy permanent secretary for iTaukei Affairs Colonel Apakuki Kurusiga said conservation officers would provide training and awareness programs, visit villages, help to develop adaptation plans and support the implementation of these plans.

"They will also work to build and strengthen the yaubula management support team in each province, as well as the yaubula sub-committees at the vanua and village level.

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