Fiji joined SWA in 2021 as its 71th Government partner. The Government of Fiji has made relentless efforts in the last decade to ensure that all Fijians have access to both safe water and adequate sanitation services. It has also embedded the right to have access to clean and safe water and also efficient sanitation services into the 2013 Fijian Constitution. The Government’s commitment is also reflected in the 5 Years and 20 Years National Development Plan targeting 100% access to safe drinking water and 60% access to improved sanitation systems by 2031. With increased investment in Water and Sanitation during the last 5 years, the Fijian government is showing its responsiveness to its responsibility to meet standards, demands, and also compliance for water sanitation and hygiene. This is also contributing to meeting of targets of National Development Plans and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.
The Department of Water and Sewerage under the Ministry of Infrastructure and Meteorological Services being the Regulatory arm of the Government is responsible for the formulation of policies and regulatory frameworks for the provision of a sustainable water and sanitation sector. The Department is the focal Government Agency that provides technical advice and monitors the implementation of water and sanitation projects. The Department is also mandated to monitor the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF), a Commercial Statutory Authority established by the Fijian Government to provide water and sanitation services to all Fijians.
