Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has called on everyone around the world to demand action from their governments to save the Pacific from climate change.
Speaking at the closing of the Pacific Islands Development Forum meeting yesterday Bainimarama says ordinary people should stand with the Pacific, to lobby their politicians, to accept changes to their lifestyles so that their way of life can continue.
“Not only are we sending a strong message to the world, but we have also laid a strong foundation for the future of our organization with the charter and governing principles that are being endorsed.”
Bainimarama says the fight is not over as this will continue all the way to Paris and beyond and PIDF have never been more united on any issue or shown more resolve then fighting together against climate change.
The PIDF meeting came to a historical end yesterday with the entire member countries signing a charter which enables PIDF to be internationally recognized.
