New Zealand’s Minister Responsible for Climate Change, James Shaw is urging Pacific countries to continue supporting Fiji.
Shaw says they have substantially increased the overall Pacific Aid budget by seven hundred and fifteen million dollars
He says climate change is one of the top three priorities for all the countries in the Pacific.
“Here in the Pacific we are talking about some of the smallest island nations on earth located in the largest Ocean on earth and that huge ocean is being subjected to some of the greatest forces of change that humanity has ever known.”
Shaw says no one will be ignored once it comes to global decision making to deal with climate change.
He says though we are small countries but together we are being heard.
