Fiji is now experiencing various unrolling erratic weather patterns due the large amounts of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
This was revealed by the Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum who believes the effects of climate change is very much visible in Fiji.
Sayed-Khaiyum says this is why it’s important for Fiji to educate other countries at the COP23 in Germany on how climate change has affected the lives of people in the Pacific.
“As for us here in Suva it’s been raining nearly every second day but the irony is that on the other side of this island in Viti Levu, there’s actually a drought looming. For a month or so people have not received rain and the agriculture land is getting dry up, wells are getting dried up, people are facing water shortages. This is directly a result of climate change so all of us, as individuals, as a country, a region and as a world we need to be very much aware of what’s happening because of climate change and the challenge for all of us is what can we do to be able to meet these various conditions created by climate change.”
Sayed-Khaiyum was speaking at the crowning of Miss Fiji at Thurston Garden in Suva last night.
