Natural resources and the environment in Fiji : a review of existing and proposed legislation / by Nathan Evans

Most legislation governing natural resources in Fiji is very old and outdated, and very little attention is given to environmental issues in these statutes. The absence of a legislative environmental policy results in an absence of statutes with an express or implied environmental mandate, while laws governing resource development fail to recognise the environmental basis of natural resources. As a result, legislation provides little in the way of capacity to protect the environment from the impacts of development activities. There is certainly no mandate or legislative capacity to pursue the goal of sustainable development.
