PM appeals to national community on climate change

June 9, 2015 5:00 am

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has appealed to the international community to join countries that are taking action on climate change rather than those that are dragging their feet to fight these issues.

Bainimarama made the appeal at the Food and Agriculture Organization conference in Rome today.

He says now is the time to take action as the clock is ticking and time is rapidly running out.

‘’History will judge the industrialized nations very harshly if they do not stand with us at this critical juncture. It is clearly not only our future in the Pacific that is at stake but the future of mankind as a whole. It stands to reason that small island developing nations like Fiji are powerless to act ourselves because our own carbon emissions are negligible’’.

Bainimarama encouraged more than 1,700 participants at the conference to have a chance as a community of nations to make a change at the COP 21 summit in Paris in November.

FAO Director General Jose Graziano da Silva supports the move and says there is no time for negativity with climate change and adds FAO will do its part to take action.
