Public Awareness:  Engagement of various media outlets (TV, print media, radio talkback shows, Government-organized workshops) to assist in the dissemination of information to the public.  An internal committee currently oversees the program which is called the Fiji Energy Efficiency Awareness Promotion (FEEAP).  The committee also works with Pasifika Communications who had been recruited for about 3 years now as the Department’s FEEAP Media Consultant.  The company is responsible for providing advice on Media issues to the Committee, producing TV and Print Media advertisements and also for developing strategies for the overall programme.
