The Soasoa drainage catchment is largely reclaimed land that is used for coastal agriculture and is dominated by sugarcane farming. In the recent past, these areas have been exposed to more frequent seawater inundation and flooding events that cause crop failures and affect livelihoods. The Fiji GCCA+ SUPA project 'Scaling up the Soasoa drainage system, Fiji' seeks to increase the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities of Soasoa, Macuata Province, in Fiji through comprehensive planning, and an integrated scaled up infrastructure and ecosystem-based adaption. The project has prepared an integrated watershed management plan for the period 2021 – 2051, and as part of this plan drainage works will be implemented. The work includes the construction of two double barrel flood gates, one five barrel trash rack structure and the raising of the levee. These infrastructure works will contribute to the reduction of the flooding events in the Soasoa watershed.
