Flood mitigation is vital for national development. The Drainage and Flood Protection Programme intends to improve the lives and livelihoods of Fijians by mitigating damages due to floods and minimize their destruction and implementation of a range of measures to reduce the risks to people, property and infrastructure. Flood and Drainage Programme allows providing adequate infrastructure to mitigate the impacts of the flood on our communities. The activities undertaken by the programme includes;
- River dredging
- Riverbank protection works for specific villages
- Maintenance of drainage infrastructures
The above interventions are designed to restore the conveyance capacity of rivers and creeks for maximum discharge and to minimize river bank erosion.
