The Asian Development Bank has estimated that Fijiâ's total GDP losses by 2100 due to climate change could reach almost 4%.1 Fiji will experience more droughts, floods, rainfall, and extreme weather events as climate change becomes more pervasive.2 The Fijian government has recently enacted a program that will relocate people in small villages throughout the country whose homes have been considered at risk of destruction by climate change.4 This plan for Climate Change refugees has been used in other small islands across the Pacific.5 Furthermore, the Fijian government has ratified the Kyoto Protocol and they have also created the National Environment Council and Climate Change Committee.6 There is also a Department of the Environment for Fiji that helps regulate the Environmental Impact Assessments that various ...See More committees submit.7 Show Less

Fiji, endowed with forest, mineral, and fish resources, is one of the most developed of the Pacific island economies though still with a large subsistence sector. Sugar exports, remittances from Fijians working abroad, and a growing tourist industry - with 400,000 to 500,000 tourists annually - are the major sources of foreign exchange. Fiji's sugar has special access to European Union markets but will be harmed by the EU's decision to cut sugar subsidies. Sugar processing makes up one-third of industrial activity but is not efficient. Fiji's tourism industry was damaged by the December 2006 coup and is facing an ...See More uncertain recovery time. In 2007 tourist arrivals were down almost 6%, with substantial job losses in the service sector, and GDP dipped. The coup has created a difficult business climate. The EU has suspended all aid until the interim government takes steps toward new elections. Long-term problems include low investment, uncertain land ownership rights, and the government's inability to manage its budget. Overseas remittances from Fijians working in Kuwait and Iraq have decreased significantly. Fiji's current account deficit peaked at 23% of GDP in 2006, and declined to 12.5% of GDP in 2012.
