Title: Fiji Kava: production, trade, role and challenges

Author: Mohanty, Manoranjan
Subject:  kava|kava trade|kava production|niche product|yaqona
Volume: Vol. 37 no.1, 2017
Collation: p. 5-30

Abstract: Like any other Small Island Developing State (SIDS), Fiji has limited entrepreneurial opportunities. However, these countries have some unique highvalue niche products that have attracted global attention. Among the limited niche products in Fiji, kava (Piper methysticum) known as ‘yaqona’ or ‘grog’, is a popular agricultural and industrial product. Kava is not only a traditional, ceremonial and social drink in Fiji, but also a product that contributes to social and economic development through export and foreign exchange earnings and provides employment, and livelihoods, and alleviates poverty. As a beverage and pharmaceutical product, Fiji kava is increasing its importance nationally and internationally. The paper analyzes kava in Fiji as an entrepreneurial and business product, its trends in production, trade, ‘niche market’, growth potential, its role, and also explores the issues and challenges associated with kava in Fiji.

Title: Fiji's women migrant workers and human rights : the case of nurses and teachers in the Republic of Marshall Islands

Author: Rokoduru, Avelina
Subject:  
Volume: Vol.27 no.2, 2004
Collation:

Abstract: Fiji’s international labour migration studies are dominated by research on skilled mobility to metropolitan countries. By way of countering this emphasis, this paper focuses on human rights issues affecting women migrant workers who for employment reasons have moved from Fiji Islands to the Marshall Islands, as an example of intra-Pacific labour migration. The paper examines four types of migrant rights—civil, social, political and industrial—and in particular, critiques the effectiveness of the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) regarding the rights of migrant women workers. The Fiji women nurses and teachers in the Marshall Islands are awarded all four types of rights. Nevertheless, the general lack of information and awareness of this type of protection, an absence of appropriate institutions and structures, and the non-ratification of CEDAW by the Marshall Islands government are barriers against the recognition and enjoyment of these rights. The paper concludes with issues, problems and solutions towards realisation of rights for Fiji’s women migrant workers.

Title: Fire and people in tropical island grassland landscapes : Fiji and Madagascar

Subject:  Burning of land|Madagascar

Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 121-129

Abstract: Little research has focused specifically on fire in Fiji’s leeward grass-covered hills and mountains. In this paper, I review what is known about Fiji’s grassland fires, what we can surmise from comparison with Madagascar (another frequently burnt tropical island landscape) and what questions deserve further research. Grassy biomes and fire were more common than previously thought in prehuman seasonally dry landscapes; Madagascar and Fiji are no exception. People burn in both places for diverse livelihood reasons, but in particular for pasture management and cropfield preparation. Fires, however, do escape control and damage property, and are also blamed for effects on health, climate and biodiversity. Government regulation of fire is difficult to enforce and often ignored. Given the danger of fuel build- up and the cost of other land management options, continued traditional burning is a realistic future outlook.

Title: Food for the gods or malnutrition for many? : some implications of the widespread introduction of Theobroma cacao into the Pacific island agricultural systems

Author: Thomas, Pamela M.
Subject:  Cocoa|Economic aspects|Fiji
 Cocoa|Social aspects|Fiji
Volume: Vol.07, 1981
Collation: p. 37-80

Abstract: Theobroma cacao, considered by the ancient Mexicans to be ``food for the Gods``, is today an important export crop in many tropical countries. In 1980, cocoa worth $3 ,000 million was sold on the world market. Cocoa was introduced into the Pacific in the 1850s and although production has been limited, it has provided Vanuatu, Tahiti, Western Samoa and Papua New Guinea with a small, steady income (Gill and Duffus, 1980: 12). With a rapid increase in cocoa prices in the Pacific to climb upon the cocoa bandwaggon and greatly increased production is being encouraged by governments in Papua New Guinea, Western Samoa and Fiji.

Title: Freshwater Mussel (Batissa violacea) Fishery and its Value in Fiji

Author: Lako, Jimaima, Kuridrani, Nanise, Sobey, Milika
Subject:  Fiji freshwater mussels
 Kai fishery
 Batissa violacea
Volume: Vol. 39, no. 1, 2019
Collation: p. 192-215

Abstract: This paper examines the local freshwater mussel, or kai (Batissa violacea), fishery value chain, its values and contribution to the livelihood of people in Viti Levu, Fiji. The assessment was performed through face-to-face interviews, with the use of semistructured questionnaires administered to 125 actors. A walk through the value-chain was also conducted that confirmed the sites’ environmental conditions. Results revealed that even though the kai fishery is dominated by rural women, men were also employed as kai processors, transporting agents and exporters. This fishery generated at least 58 other employments through the 500 kai harvesters within the five major provinces understudy. These were drivers, boat builders, retailers, processors, exporters, and harvesters. Three sales pathways were identified that determined the revenues and profits: (i) harvesters sell own harvests directly to the consumer at the municipal markets, (ii) harvesters sell through intermediary traders to consumers, and (iii) harvesters sell through processors to supermarkets, hotels or exporters. When revenues and profits were calculated, harvesters earned much less, compared to intermediary traders, processors, and exporters. Major constraints include continuous reduction in catch size of kai, lack of transport, and marketing at the local municipal markets that require improvements.

Title: From brochures to the internet : tourism, marketing and development in the Cook Islands

Author: Levinson, John , Milne, Simon
Subject:  Internet marketing|brochures|Cook Islands|South Pacific, Image
Volume: Vol.26 no.1&2, 2004
Collation:

Abstract: In this paper we review some of the links that exist between tourism, marketing and development in the South Pacific and then examine the case of the Cook Islands. Following a brief overview of the nation’s tourism industry and its growth, we evaluate the impact that changing types of marketing can have on issues as diverse as the representation of culture and the creation of economic linkages. We examine brochure-based and web-based marketing images and content. Our findings reveal that the Internet has the potential to alleviate some traditional problems associated with tourism marketing, such as the power of intermediaries in the marketing chain, and inaccurate or out of date portrayals of destinations and their peoples. Nevertheless, many of the marketing-related problems associated with small size and limited budgets will persist, including issues of control, dependency, and identity.

Title: From Franconesia to Euronesia : what future for France, and the European Union in the South Pacific?

Subject:  Intergovernmental fiscal relations|Pacific Area

Volume: Vol.27 no.1, 2004
Collation: p. 95-108

Abstract: France has long been criticised for her colonial presence in the South Pacific. As a matter of fact, though, if dependence is no longer an acceptable option in the early 21st century for most geo-political entities in the region, neither does full political independence give greater guarantee of economic and social viability. Besides, with globalisation on the rise everywhere, including in this part of the world, interdependence seems to be the key word. Taking this evolving context into account, this essay aims at assessing the role that France, and beyond her the European Union, can play in tomorrow’s South Pacific.

Title: Future challenges, ancient solutions in land use and land tenure

Author: Ward, R. Gerard
Subject:  
Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 111-120

Abstract: ‘Ancient Solutions’ were always embedded in a total social, technical and economic complex that rarely exists today. Examples of ancient complex irrigated terrace systems of taro cultivation and of wet land ditching and mounding systems are described and the possibilities of using selected aspects of these old systems are considered. Ancient and current land tenure practices, which were not recognised when colonial governments codified ‘customary’ tenure systems, are described and the question of whether such practices should be recognised and legalised in future is considered. If these ancient systems of land use and tenure are to be available to meet future challenges, it is important to ensure that detailed knowledge and understanding of them is not lost as generations pass.
