Abstract

The islanads Ovalau and Moturiki in central Fiji are selected for the investigation of coastal change over the past c.200 years. Although having coastal environments typical of many tropical Pacific Islands, they are also atypical because they experienced urban and infrastructural developments before most other parts. The islands are surrounded by coral reef, mangroves are concentrated along leeward coasts. Most shoreline-protection initiatives (vegetation planting and seawall construction) have failed. Three major management implications of the study are discussed
