Climate Resilient Islands Project (CRI)
The Climate Resilient Islands (CRI) Program is a multi-country Pacific program funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade Aid Program and implemented by Live & Learn Environmental Education. In Fiji the program is being implemented in the Northern Division to strengthen community resilience to the impacts of climate change through nature-based approaches.
The Climate Resilient Islands program outcome areas are:
Program outputs will be linked with one or more activity clusters, which include:
1. Restoration of idle lands, including tree planting and riparian management, incorporating climate resilient agricultural practices
2. Protection of forest areas, alongside sustainable land use planning
3. Establishing a talanoa space for indigenous knowledge sharing, youth empowerment and connecting communities with sub-national government
4. Developing a Rural Business Hub that promotes alternative livelihoods based on honey, kava and tree seedlings.
Live & Learn Fiji will be guided by the Climate Resilient Islands logic and activity framework from which annual work programs will be developed throughout the duration of project implementation.
