PM talks climate change at ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly

June 15, 2015 4:21 am

Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama has used the 29th Session of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly to call for developed economies to be shamed for not agreeing to cut carbon gas emissions.

Speaking at the opening of the meeting today Bainimarama said the global threat of climate change has to be confronted.

He says it is simply unacceptable that some global nations have not agreed to sign the agreement to cut carbon gas emissions – calling them ‘a group of selfish.’

Bainimarama says the threat of climate change is at an even worse scale – with about 600 Fijian communities directly affected and some whole villages having to relocate.

He says this is small compared to what our neighbors Kiribati, Tuvalu and Marshal Islands – whose very existence are at stake.

Fiji will lead a campaign to call for action at the World Climate Summit in Paris in December – so the world can face up to this crisis.

The ACP Co-President Fitz Jackson has commended Fiji’s efforts on climate change and has relayed the ACP’s support in Fiji’s call for action.
