More specifically, the objective is to celebrate the difference we can all make, as travellers, in making sure that the impact of travel and tourism is positive in these three areas.
The truth is we have quite a way to go but there is also a huge opportunity.
I share with you some highlights of my recent road trip to the Western region of Fiji, specifically to the Town of Ba via Kings Road.
As I travel from the capital Suva in the central region of Fiji, the environment looks so different. I have been a frequent traveller along the Kings Road since I was a kid and I have experienced the changing climate from then until today. I notice how the drought (Climate change) has really affected these areas.
The environment looks so brown instead of where there was usually green. Especially in the area called Yaqara where cattle farming is a common sight, it looks like the cattle are surviving mostly on the sun-dried grass.
