Abstract:This thesis focuses on three community-centered initiatives in Fiji undertaken by WWFSouth Pacific Programme Office (WWF-SPPO), to examine how this organization's CBNRM efforts challenge or reinforce meanings of marginality, community and identity in Fiji. It examines existing state-constructed imaginings of national belonging and marginality in Fiji and how these identities and meanings have been reproduced through contemporary international conservation discourse. This analysis demonstrates how current CBNRM generally reinforces existing inequitable constructions of belonging in, ownership of, and marginality in, Fiji's landscape.
