Speaking at the third day of the National Climate Week yesterday, permanent secretary for the Ministry of Forests, Samuela Lagataki, revealed the initiatives undertaken by the ministry.

"Ministry of Forests is working with the Emalu landowning units who have given their consent for a total of 7300 hectares of forests for the implementation of the Reducing Emissions through Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) project," he said.

"The ministry has set up a new REDD+ Unit at Colo-i-Suva to manage the project under the funding from the FCPF."
