Fiji Joins UN Smart Island Program, To Launch Digital Initiative in Rotuma

Fiji has become part of the UN Smart Island programme with Rotuma designated as the pioneer island for launching the initiative, connecting them to digitally enabled services.

The smart island concept seeks to address socio-economic challenges and improve livelihoods through the use of new and emerging technology and digital transformation.

Fiji Minister for Communications and Deputy PM Manoa Kamikamica said they have just completed a scoping exercise to identify the needs, challenges, and opportunities on the island, which will help in creating a tailored plan that speaks to the requirements of the island.

“Once the Smart Island Programme is successfully rolled out in Rotuma, we can use those insights as we deploy to other unconnected and underserved areas,” Kamikamica said.
