Prime Minister and COP23 President Voreqe Bainimarama

The Environment and Climate Adaptation Levy (ECAL) is a tax on prescribed services, items and income. ECAL helps fund critical work across Fiji to protect our natural environment, reduce our carbon footprint, and adapt our economy, our communities and our infrastructure to the worsening impacts of climate change.

Fiji is a nation on the frontlines of climate change. We are experiencing stronger and more frequent cyclones, rising seas are forcing some Fijian communities to relocate, and changing weather patterns pose a serious threat to our food security.

When you spend time in Fiji, and pay ECAL, you are helping us secure our future by boosting our resilience to these devastating climate impacts across a broad front.
ECAL is collected by the Fiji Revenue & Customs Services (FRCS) and administered by the Ministry of Economy in accordance with the Finance Management Act 2004 and Finance Instructions 2010.

This is an update from April 30, 2018. Another update on ECAL is expected to be delivered as part of the 2019/2020 National Budget kit.
