Major drive to compost more in Niue

The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program is implementing the pilot project, with at least 200 families in seven villages being targeted to get involved.

SPREP's Lusiana Ralogaivau says the adoption of compost techniques will help reduce harmful chemicals in the Pacific region.

She says composting will also build healthy soils and a sustainable source of food for a country that relies heavily on agriculture, protecting natural ecosystems, and being part of the climate change mitigation solution.
