Northern Development Programme (NDP)

The Northern Development Programme (NDP) is a government funded programme that provides equity assistance through grants to enterprises to improve the livelihoods of the people of the Northern Division.

The programme was established formally in the year 2008 following the Cabinet decision due to the depressed state of the northern economy which contributed significantly to the migration of people from rural Vanua Levu to the urban centers of Labasa, Savusavu, Taveuni and to the urban and peri-urban centers of Suva, Lautoka and Nadi in Viti Levu. 

Additionally, the Programme is aimed to promote economic diversification and strengthen the supply chain.  

Assistance was provided to Sectors which have growth potential, such as Agribusiness, Fisheries, Forestry, Tourism, Processing and Manufacturing. In order to further the development of the Northern Division it was decided to expand the range of sectors mentioned above to include Information, Communication and Technology Services, Textile, Clothing and Footwear, Financial Service Providers, Creative Arts, Renewable Clean Energy, and Recycling and Upcycling.
