Ecotourism on the Navua River, Fiji

Kelly S. Bricker, Deborah L. Kerstetter, University of Utah, USA


Approximately 57% of Fiji’s population are indigenous Fijian, the majority of them living in rural areas, dependent on farming for subsistence and livelihood, working on land that is held under customary law, where environmental considerations are given importance both by tradition and through government legislation.
