ESMS capacity building workshops for local grantees in Fiji and Vanuatu

Our partner, IUCN - ORO, the Oceania regional office of International Union for Conservation of Nature, organized capacity building workshops on Environmental and Social Management Systems (ESMS) for the "Mangrove Restoration and Management in Fiji" project, implemented by Community Centred Conservation (C3), and the "Coral Reef Restoration in Vanuatu" project, implemented by Lamacca Climate Change Association.

Did you know? IUCN - ORO, the Oceania regional office of International Union for Conservation of Nature, is responsible for managing the implementation of local Kiwa Initiative projects.

As part of this, our IUCN colleagues visited Labasa, Fiji, from November 09 to 11 to meet with the C3 team (Community Centred Conservation), managing a Kiwa project that supports the restoration of mangrove forest and associated livehoods within locally managed marine areas.

From November 26 to December 01, they were in Malekula, Vanuatu, monitoring a coral reef restoration project implemented by Lamacca Climate Change Association, which aims to restore, preserve and conserve natural and marine resources in a vulnerable state. IUCN staff provide training on the Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS), a procedure that ensures that potential negative impacts are avoided/minimized, and positive impacts are widely encouraged.

Project monitoring and community capacity building are key objectives of the Kiwa Initiative.
