The Draft Fiji National Report: On progress in implementation of the Mauritius strategy for implementation (MSI) of the Barbados programme of action (BPOA) 2010-2012 carries the theme "Accelerating Integrated Approach to Sustainable Development". Based on achievements to-date lessons learned and the need to further improve implementation, it is now recognized that a more targeted focus is necessary. Accelerating the integrated approach is the key to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our collective efforts towards sustainable development.
Fiji is highly vulnerable to climate change due to its position as a Small Developing State (SIDS), which leaves the country exposed to sea-level rise, cyclones of increasing intensity, and flooding, among other potential consequences. It is therefore imperative to take ambitious and rapid action to address climate change through GHG emission reductions. The Fiji Low Emission Development Strategy (LEDS) 2018-2050 is a living document compiled in 201 to define pathways to achieve low emission development in Fiji until 2050.
Fiji’s current Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) is specific to the energy sector both in terms of a GHG (greenhouse gas) baseline, with 2013 as the reference year, and in terms of potential mitigation actions.
