Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama reminded delegates of the pre-COP event in Nadi this morning that together, they can bring the Paris Agreement to life.
Speaking to the delegates, Bainimarama says the Partnership Day today and tomorrow are a critical part of the broader climate action agenda arising out of the Paris Agreement.
He says the Fijian COP23 Presidency created this innovative gathering in order to bring together representatives of all local, regional and international players to move this process forward.
“This is what we mean by the Grand Coalition that we are helping to build to enable us to stay within the 1.5 degrees. We are bringing together those who have the power to deliver our objective.”
The participants of the three day pre-COP event are from 68 different countries at every level of governments, decision-makers in civil society and business, faith based organization and community members.
