The Australian government has commended Fiji’s efforts in coordinating a Pacific agenda with a high level meeting of leaders from the region as well as leading specialists in the fields of climate change.
Australia’s Minister for International Development and the Pacific Concetta Fierravanti-Wells says there are a number of issues that collectively can be achieved.
“It includes a faster progress on renewable energy, a stronger disaster response and insurance facilities, stronger science and policy capabilities to inform action against climate change, innovative financing solutions and advances in agriculture which combine higher productivity with good mitigation and adaptation outcomes.”
Fierravanti-Wells made the comments at the Climate Action Pacific Partnership meeting which concludes in Suva today.
