Description The project will involve a combination of structural and non-structural measures to achieve, in a cost effective manner, a level of flood hazard protection for the Nadi town and the lower Nadi river floodplain that is desired and accepted by stakeholders.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Located on the western side of the main island of Viti Levu, and with an urban population of 59,717 (2017 census), Nadi is Fiji's fourth largest city after Suva, Nasinu and Lautoka. Established on the confluence of the Nadi and Malakua rivers, tourism and agricultural production dominate the local economy. With tourist numbers growing 6.4% annually since 2014, Nadi International Airport located 9 kilometres from town was the principal port of 842,884 international visitors in 2017. The prospering tourist industry, accounting for earnings equivalent to 19.1% of GDP (2017), ensures Nadi will remain the commercial and tourism centre of Fiji. As major flood events have consistently and severely interrupted economic activity, the government has continually emphasized the strategic economic importance of protecting Nadi from increasingly regular flood events.
