ITAUKEI Affairs permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela has highlighted issues concerning village bylaws, good governance, climate change, violence against women, the elections and the protection of natural resources.

He told the Serua Provincial Council meeting in Navua yesterday the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs had been working closely with the various provinces to address the issues.

He said it was important for the provincial council members to take note of issues related to the protection and conservation of the people's natural resources.

Mr Kaunisela said people often took for granted their natural resources which was why the ministry had stepped in to assist people in protecting their resources.

He said his ministry was also trying to establish a committee that would look into the issue of natural resources being used wisely.
