Announcing three significant fisheries and oceans policy papers

With the support of the Packard Foundation, EDO NSW has been working with Fiji Environmental Law Association (FELA) to support the development of comprehensive law and policy frameworks for sustainable fisheries and oceans management in Fiji.

As a result of this work in 2016 and 2017, FELA and EDO NSW completed three significant policy papers in this area:

It is hoped these papers will assist stakeholders to identify key issues, gaps and options for law and policy reform to support sustainable fisheries and oceans management in Fiji.
