Synopsis

This is the final report for the Gender-Based Violence and REDD+ in Fiji: Tackling Resource Conflict and Addressing Gender-Based Risk in the Environment (GBV/FGRM+) activity, delivered under the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Resilient, Inclusive, & Sustainable Environments (RISE) Challenge. Using the iDARE framework, the activity successfully incorporated methods to address gender-based violence (GBV) associated with the REDD+ program in Fiji. As one of the winners of RISE, Marstel-Day and WI-HER built on a previous resource-based conflict and land rights initiative, led by the Government of Fiji (GoF) and funded by the World Bank, to improve the readiness and implementation of REDD+ programming in Fiji. With funding from USAID under the RISE Challenge, the GBV/FGRM+ activity leveraged a proven gender integration tool (iDARE) to improve and enhance FGRM, a promising conflict mitigation mechanism, for improved management, control, and access to resources and land in Fiji.
