Development partners to step up: Seruiratu

Climate Change Champion Inia Seruiratu has called on development partners to step up and support the Pacific Island communities.
With an increasing number of progressive technologies and creative initiatives being implemented in the Pacific, Seruiratu says these developments should be shared and appropriately replicated across the region.
Seruiratu says there is a great need for more collaboration in this regard.
“Regional supporting structures and networks are also seen to serve as safety nets – Pacific island communities facing common concerns banding together across the vast Pacific Ocean to support each other and uniting to speak with a stronger and louder voice to the rest of the global community.”
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is calling for active participation from other Pacific island countries as Fiji passes on the COP Presidency to Poland.
