We partner with rural, remote, primarily indigenous farming clusters throughout Fiji's main islands, including over 500 farmers. We support farming clusters to transition from subsistence to semi-commercial agriculture by promoting regenerative soil practices, agroforestry, and planting "climate-smart" crops to better weather uncertainties, particularly those due to global climate change. In addition, we support communities in post-harvest and disaster handling of produce and linking them to market opportunities.
By developing resiliency through crops such as vanilla and turmeric, reintroducing traditional crops, and developing sustainable farming methods, local communities become more resilient in the face of big storms and changing climate. They must develop multiple income sources by growing sustainable, high-value crops.
