All Fijians need to work together to be able to understand these issues. Why we are doing this and why we must play a role in it. We understand why this is very important not just for Fiji but the entire planet Earth.
One of the problems we face is climate change. It is general knowledge that climate change is caused by carbon and gases we use, that is released damaging the atmosphere. It is no doubt that we also know the effects of climate change.
About 78 women residing in Kalokolevu Village in Lami are set to benefit from receiving the wood burning efficient cookstoves under the Improved Cook Stove Programme in Fiji.
In handing over the rocket stoves, @FijiAG encouraged Fijians to work together to tackle the adverse effects of climate change.
“This stove will make more fire and enable you to cook food more efficiently with less wood, so we will be saving out on our trees,” the A-G said.
The A-G thanked the Inter-Ministerial team consisting of the Ministry of Forest, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Women and the Ministry of i-Taukei Affairs, together with the local service provider for donating the much needed items.
The Improved Cook Stove Programme in Fiji is fully funded by Korea Carbon Management Limited and the only local service provider is Kasabias Pte Ltd.
