July 27, 2018 7:35 pm
After the culmination of discussions at the Climate Action Pacific Partnership Conference in Suva yesterday, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is confident that Pacific Island countries have the momentum to confront climate threats.
In his closing remarks at the CAPP’s meeting, Bainimarama says the energy and the drive during the two day conference proved to be the driving factor for the Pacific Island nations.
With many small island nations facing the reality of Climate Change, Bainimarama says it is vital to find ways to better coordinate and cooperate our efforts towards mitigating climate related issues.
“We have been developing practical solutions for mitigation, adaptation, resilience and financing. For example, we can all be proud that the idea for a Pacific NDC Hub, which was conceived at the inaugural CAPP last year, is now to be a reality.”
Bainimarama says there is much to be done, however, he is confident the global community is coming to terms with the practical requirements of responding to climate change.
