dc.descriptionThe report covers all the major issues which should be of concern to Fiji. Perhaps the most important aspect of the report is the fact that it makes us realise to what extent the environment and its resources support virtually every aspect of lives. While Fiji is blessed with an abundance of natural resources relative to many parts of the world and lacks the serious demographic, economic and industrial pressures from which the majority of serious environmental problems originate, we must also be aware of the physical constraints under which we are developing the country. Fiji's small size, young landrape and evolutionary isolation make our natural resources vulnerable to loss ordegradation. It is through understanding of these aspects that we can enhance opportunities for development based on the sustainable utilisation of our environmental resources.
