Climate Change

Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence) ♦  Sea-level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, thus threatening vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support the livelihood of island communities (very high confidence). ♦  There is strong evidence that under most climate change scenarios, water resources in small islands are likely to be seriously compromised (very high confidence). ♦  It is very likely that subsistence and commercial agriculture on small islands will be adversely affected by climate change (high confidence).

This workshop was convened by the Fiji Department of Forests to provide a forum for stakeholder discussion of the proposed changes to the Fiji National Code of Harvesting Practice 2010.

It was also intended to be a forum for presentation of the Consultants initial observations and findings with regards to incorporating the concept to RIL into the NCOHP (see for reference report: Reduced Impact Logging and Fiji’s National Harvest Code of Practice, Klassen, 2012).

This study reports on the change in carbon stock following different management regimes including Sustainable Forest Management some 20 years ago as part of the Natural Forest Management Pilot Project (NFMPP) in Nakavu, Fiji.

Currently, the most important result is that the area under Sustainable Forest Management regime seems to contain only slightly less carbon (2.5 % less, in average over the felling cycle) than the untouched control areas which remain in their natural state.

This accuracy assessment of the available data and data storage on the forest resources in Fiji shows that managed commercial forests are well documented, while indigenous forests usually lack good quality data, due to uncontrolled utilization. It recommends the systematic improvement of data quality, including a review of definitions of forest states and stratification.

The report contains a project concept for a demonstration area: all SFM-relevant measures will be implemented but under the extended perspective of REDD+. In particular, the development of carbon stock after different logging intensities will be elaborated.
