Navosa: Livelihoods, Health and Disaster Management
Project Cost: $1,121,680
Project Length: 3 years
The remote inland province of Navosa is one of Fiji’s poorest regions with 50-60% of the population living in poverty. While agriculture is the main source of income for families in the district, most struggle to generate the F$150-200 FJD needed to feed and care for a family each week. Poor road conditions limit their ability transport their produce to sell at higher priced markets – the closest project community is 45km from the nearest commercial business district.
On top of this, Fiji remains one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Every disaster marks a step back for a community’s development out of poverty. To address this, ADRA’s Livelihoods, Health and Disaster Management project is working with 15 of the poorest communities to reduce poverty and improve disaster resilience, impacting 15,000 people.
