Risk informed road enhances accessibility of Vatawai community

Dec 15, 2021

For many years, the members of the 27 households of Vatawai, including children and people with disabilities, have primarily transported school goers and farm produce on horseback to and from the community. Some were able to hire transport, however this was costly. The Vatawai community is located in the interior of Ba Province, approximately 22 kilometers from Ba town. The journey to Ba town has been arduous and at times unsafe.

With support from the Gov4Res Project, the Fiji Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management constructed the risk informed road, which enhances  accessibility of Vatawai community.
