Effective policies rely on good information. Policy makers from the region identified weak communication, poor engagement of stakeholders, and lack of timely information as constraints to the development of effective Pacific agricultural and forestry policies and the enforcement and implementation of existing ones.

The Review of Rural Land Use in Fiji Islands: Opportunities for the New Millennium report contains a valuable synthesis of previous national reports and studies concerning sustainable development in Fiji. The report further signifies issues and constraints in development and the resolve to take immediate action upon the burgeoning environmental problems now evident in Fiji.
