Climate Change is the biggest battle of our time and the battle that we must win.

This was highlighted by Health Minister, Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete at a side event on the margins of the World Health Assembly in Geneva.

In his speech, Dr Waqainabete appealed to the audience of the reality of Small Island Developing States.

He says climate change and air pollution kills – that we need a healthy ocean to sustain humanity.

The Minister adds we must tax pollution not people – reiterating the call of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

Dr Waqainabete called for genuine and shared commitment across the Pacific to implement the action plan on climate change.

He also updated the forum of Fiji’s commitment in August this year, where Fiji will host the Fifth Asia Pacific Parliamentarians Meeting on Global Health.

The meeting will bring parliamentarians from 30 countries across Asia and the Pacific to Fiji, where they will discuss further on the nexus between climate change and health.
