Fiji is serious in its commitment to safeguarding the health of our oceans.
Speaking at the Opening of the Partnership Day for the Pre-COP meeting in Denarau this morning, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says an Oceans Pathway Partnership will be launched this afternoon.
The Oceans Pathway Partnership is designed to build support for elevating the importance of oceans within our climate institutions.
" I am convinced that we cannot achieve our collecting climate goals without addressing the health of our oceans."
Bainimarama adds the Oceans Pathway Partnership is of particular value to Fiji because the Pacific plays a central role in our culture, economy and very survival.
