Title: The need for an integrated approach to understanding and managing coastal change in river delta areas : the case of the Rewa river

Author: Tamata, Ulukalesi, Comley, James, Tokalauvere, Lanieta
Subject:  Marine sediments
 Coast changes
Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 11-24

Abstract: The watershed area of the Rewa River, the largest river in Fiji, takes up about one-third of the total land area of Viti Levu. The Rewa watershed receives high rainfall, and the Rewa catchment has the highest run-off coefficient for the major rivers in Fiji. Flooding of the Rewa River and delta causes massive losses, to the local people and to the nation in damage to infrastructure, economic costs of rehabilitation and financial assistance to affected communities. Not only is flooding of the Rewa River a major stumbling block to the expansion of Nausori Town, it also affects land formations in the delta: over time, the Rewa delta has undergone physical change, as is characteristic of deltas around the world. The causes of flooding have been attributed to a combination of factors, both natural and anthropogenic . Mitigating the effects of flooding requires an integrated approach.

Title: New Caledonia looking at the experiences of other Pacific Island countries : borrowing from Pacific pasts?

Author: Chauchat, Mathias
Subject:  Decolonisation
Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 65-72

Abstract: Decolonisation has always been tragic in French history. How can such a situation be avoided in New Caledonia? New Caledonia has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1986. Civil unrest, which culminated in 1988, led to agreement with France on increased autonomy under the Matignon Accord of 1988 and the Noumea Accord of 1998. The Noumea Agreement borrowed from the Melanesian tradition called palabre, in which Kanak communities, traditionally. sit and talk together in order to solve problems. The Noumea Agreement also borrowed separate citizenship from the Anglo-Saxon tradition. The Noumea Agreement describes the process of transfer of powers from France to New Caledonia as irreversible. It provides for mandating a referendum sometime after 2014 on the contentious issue of independence. This referendum could be a recipe for disaster. What could New Caledonia borrow from Pacific Pasts?

Title: Nuclear activities and the Pacific Islanders

Subject:  Nuclear energy|Oceania

Volume: Vol.10, 1984
Collation: p. 1-36

Abstract: The men and women who have grown up on the thousands of islands across the Pacific Ocean have been for the most part isolated from the conveniences and controversies of the modern age by the vast stretches of water that separate them from crowded cities of the continents. But they have not been spared direct contact with the nuclear controversy. Pacific Islanders have experienced first-hand suffering from nuclear testing. They have been passive recipients of nuclear fallout, have developed health problems, and have lost several of their atols because of the many tests conducted by the United States, France, and the United Kingdom in their region. Because they frequently saw events unfold in a manner at variance with what they thought they had been told would happen, and because they have not seen any direct benefit for them from the nuclear testing, they have not developed a deep suspicion of things nuclear.

Title: Objecting to objectivity: reflecting on evaluation in Vanuatu

Author: Nichol, Martha Geary, Overton, John
Subject:  monitoring and evaluation|objectivity|ownership|relationships|
Volume: Vol. 37 no.1, 2017
Collation: p. 62-83

Abstract: Evaluation is intended as an objective activity to assess and learn from development interventions. In practice it is donor driven to meet donor needs and is predicated on donor conceptions of knowledge, evidence and meaning. Rejecting the notion of objectivity and viewing evaluation as a reflection of Western epistemologies, this paper draws from observations of two evaluation exercises and several interviews in Vanuatu to highlight a significant shortcoming of current practice: the failure to recognise contextual factors of kastom, place and language. It questions the fundamental approaches to evaluation in different cultural settings and concludes with a call to focus on relationships as a first step toward more inclusive evaluation.

Title: 'On the ship, you can do anything' : the impact of international cruiseship employment for i-Kiribati women

Author: Kagan, Sophia
Subject:  Temporary migration
 Women's empowerment
 Cruiseship employment
Volume: Vol.35 no.3, 2016
Collation: p. 34-51

Abstract: Kiribati is a remote, small island country with a long history of male temporary migration as a mechanism for relieving unemployment and facilitating remittances. This article looks at a unique case study of female i-Kiribati migration and is based on interviews with a small sample of i-Kiribati women who worked on international cruiseships between 2009-2012, thus providing interesting insight into first-time migration experiences of women from a remote island country. The findings suggest that while the experience did not generally lead to observable changes in their ability to manage remittances, nor in gender relations between husband and wife, employment on the ship did nonetheless have strong reported benefits in terms of independence, skills development and confidence of the women interviewed. These findings corroborate existing literature showing while entrenched gender norms rarely shift directly due to women’s migration experiences, migration does contribute to the women’s empowerment through increased agency and ability to make decisions, both during and after their migration.

Title: On welfare losses when both quotas and tariffs are used to restrict imports

Author: Hazari, Bharat R.
Subject:  Foreign trade regulation|Fiji
 Import quotas|Fiji
Volume: Vol.06, 1980
Collation: p. 88-97

Abstract: The object of this not note is to analyse welfare losses when imports are restricted by the simultaneous use of both qoutas and tariffs. There exists at least two real life of where both types of restrictions are being applied to curtail the imports of foreign cars into the local market. In spite of the absencce of a local car producer the Fijian Government uses both a quotas and a tariff on imported cars. The Australian Government also uses both methods of protection - the foreign car makers are allowed to take up only 20% of the market and an import duty of 57% is also imposed. Unlike Fiji, the quotas are actioned in Australia and several models of cars are locally produced. This note analyses the welfare consequences of the above restrictions in a partial equilibrium framework. The analysis is carried out in diagrammatic terms.

Wefind that the openmss if Fij~ in hoth absolute and relatice tmns, was on the rise during 197(}-2009. The increase in openness since 1988 ho.s heen sharp, mainly hecause if the rise in imports. Our econumetric results suggest that such openness ho.s had a positice hut weak impact on the GDP growth. It ho.s hen¢ted the service sectors (e.g. the trading aad tourism sectors) whik the industrUd and constructicn sectors haoe grown little aad agriculture ho.s decelerated. We .forther ohserve that h..q;ts ftom intra-industry trade seem to he very low, particular!J due to the lack if secondmy-sector development TherifOr~for Fiji, the economic gainftom trade relies primari!J on comparatWe advantages derivedftom the traditional sectors. The country needs to pursue deliberate policies if integratUin aad to encourage domestic inoestment.for the development if modern industrial aad manufacturing sectors in the economy.
