Project to work with schools

By SALASEINI MOCEIWAI

THE Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Nadi Demonstration project plans to work with some schools in the North to help save the environment.

And if all goes according to plan, students will be required to plant trees and earn themselves some savings.

The project operates under the Ministry of Agriculture's Land and Water Resources Management.

Project manager Vinesh Kumar yesterday told stakeholders and government officials at a briefing in Labasa that some students in Nadi had benefitted from that initiative.

"We work with schools where students are encouraged to plant and every tree they plant will earn them $5 each," he said.

"The authorities responsible will inspect the area where the trees will be planted."
