SODELPA MP Lynda Tabuya says government needs to show real commitment rather than bringing the Climate Change Bill just to tick the box in time for COP26 to get climate finance to fund their election campaign.
Tabuya says the bill declares a climate urgency but the actions in the law do not show it.
She says this bill fails to build on creating a green economy filled with green jobs.
Tabuya says the biggest tragedy that this government has brought to the name of climate change is the failed green energy project in Nabou.
She says it failed because government did not have local workers with the expertise in green energy to run the project.
She says we need to invest in our young people and graduates, and until this is realized we will see more failed projects like Nabou.
Meanwhile Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama says the Nabou project is not carbon trading as Tabuya claimed.
