THE Lau Seascape Strategy is a long term collaborative effort for all organisations that are interested in biodiversity in the Lau group.

Country Director Conservation International (CI) Fiji, Susana Tuisese highlighted this in an interview with the Fiji Times Online team yesterday in Suva.

Conservation International Fiji is currently facilitating a four-day Lau Seascape Project workshop which began yesterday and is being attended by chiefs and representatives from the islands in Lau.

“Within that strategy we are confident that it encapsulates the wishes of the chiefs of Lau, their vision and how they anticipate sustainable development and natural resources protection is going to look like,” Mrs Tuisese said.

“And we are looking at until 2030 to implement the strategy,” she said.

“We don’t see it as a short term answer but we see it as a long term collaborative effort for all organisations that are interested in biodiversity in this big massive place and we also support government policies while doing conservation work on the ground.”
