Water Management in Fiji
Fiji is a Melanesian island group located in the South Paciﬁc at 1758 E longitude and 188 S
latitude (Figure 1). It is a group of islands or an archipelago with a total of 332 islands, of
which only 110 are inhabited. The group has two large islands-Viti Levu and Vanua
Levu-that have a higher population density and are hubs of economic activity.
Comparatively many of the smaller islands are made of coral reefs and are low in
elevation, thus unsuitable for habitation. The total land area of Fiji is 18,272 km
