FIJI and the SDG 2030 { Sustainable Development Goals}

“We need strong, inclusive leadership from the international, state and local community level to successfully implement the SDGs and to ensure that no one is left behind.”- The late Dr Tiko Luveni . In Fiji, SDGs are not localised which is indicative of a lack of national action plan and targets. Localizing the SDGs means more than just “landing” internationally‐agreed goals at the local level, rather, making the aspirations of the SDGs become real to local communities,households and individuals, particularly the most vulnerable in Fijian society. Reflecting on the lessons of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation noted that progress towards the SDGs must draw on the actions of local partners and galvanize participation from all actors in society reflecting Fiji’s specific capacities, constraints and challenges.
