- One of the priorities of the Fiji Ministry of Environment is to improve organic waste management to support agricultural activities in Fiji. For this reason, the ministry is utilising the allocated PacWastePlus country investment to design and implement community-based programmes that effectively collect and process organic wastes to prevent environmental pollution and support agricultural activities. With around 60% of waste disposed at the disposal being an organic material, there is a significant opportunity to reduce leachate and methane generation and to create useful soil enhancers to increase agricultural yield.
