Executive
Policy
Passed in 2014
The Green Growth Framework for Fiji: Restoring the balance in Development that is Sustainable for our Future is a living document' which was developed in early 2014. This Framework is intended to support and complement the Peoples Charter for Change, Peace and Progress and the 2010-2014 Roadmap for Democracy and Sustainable Socio-Economic Development and its successor national development documents. 

To support the vision of the Green Growth Framework: A better Fiji for All and taking into consideration the global and regional developments in green growth, the guiding principles of this Framework are as follows:
1) Reducing carbon footprints' at all levels;
2) Improving resource utilization and productivity (simply put, doing more with less);
3) Developing a new integrated approach, with all stakeholders collaborating and collectively working together for the common good. The cross-cutting nature of issues relating to sustainable development requires harmony and synergy in the formulation of strategies;
4) Strengthening socio-cultural education of responsible environmental stewardship and civic responsibility;
5) Increasing the adoption of comprehensive risk management practices;
6) Supporting the adoption of sound environment auditing of past and planned developments, in order to provide support to initiatives which not only provide economic bene ts but also improve the environmental situation;
7) Enhancing structural reforms in support of fair competition and ef ciency; and
8) Incentivising investment in the rational and ef cient use of natural resources.
 
The three pillars around which specific policy goals are developed are 1) Building Resilience to Climate Change and Disasters, 2) waste management and 3)sustainable island and ocean resources. Social and economic pillars, including sustainable transportation, are also specified.
