The Savusavu Blue Town Model looks to introduce a comprehensive framework to create thriving communities that address climate change and ocean pollution while building sustainable livelihoods within a picturesque harbor town in Fiji. Savusavu provides a safe anchorage for visiting yachts and is the focus of tourism activities on Fiji's second-largest island of Vanua Levu. By adopting a sustainable and community-driven approach to planning, the Savusavu Blue Town Model aims to develop a masterplan that will strengthen the local economy at the same time as enhancing marine conservation, supporting environmental education, and transitioning to marine renewable energy.
