BLUE PROSPERITY PROGRAM

Fiji is a nation of more than 300 islands whose past, present and future are intrinsically linked to the ocean. As historic voyagers and canoe builders for the Pacific, Fijian culture is inseparable from the ocean. 

 

The Republic of Fiji has partnered with the Waitt Institute to implement 30% protection of Fiji’s waters from 0-200 nautical miles and support ocean management in three core areas; Marine Spatial Planning, Blue Economy, and Sustainable Fisheries. This 5+ year Blue Prosperity program will be led by the Fijian Government and designed in a way to support inclusion, equity, and traditional knowledge to improve long-term economic stability, livelihoods, and ocean ecosystems.
