Target Groups

Residents of Liku and Hakup Villages, which are located within the primary forest and buffer zone areas of Huvalu Conservation Area, will be the most direct beneficiaries of project activities. While quantitative estimates of income benefits are difficult under the circumstances, particularly given the substantial exogenous risks to the tourism sector in particular associated with COVID, it nevertheless seems clear that in both the short and the long term, residents of these villages will benefit substantially from the better practices being demonstrated and disseminated. Given the small, compact population of Niue, there is also little doubt that these practices will diffuse throughout the island in short order. Emphasis on removing financial barriers and creating incentives will help toensure that these benefits prove sustainable.
