More than 250,000 tree seedlings will be made available by the Pacific Community and the European Union to help affected Fijian communities recover from Tropical cyclone Winston.
EU Ambassador to Fiji and the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs says through their joint initiative ‘Reforest Fiji’ they will make available seedlings which include Teak, Mahogany, Caribbean Pine, Eucalyptus and Acacia.
Pacific Community Director‑General Dr Colin Tukuitonga says technical advice and assistance will be provided to ensure that the most suitable tree species are planted in different sites in the targeted areas.
EU and Pacific Community also provided the Ministry of Agriculture with 43,000 fruit and vegetable seedlings earlier this month.
