Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry says the Government needs to table a detailed report on its COP26 expedition to Scotland including the costs involved and the funding sources at the next sitting of Parliament for public information.

Acting Prime Minister Inia Seruiratu is yet to respond.

Chaudhry is also calling for details of how and where the Government intends to use the $6 billion it says it needs to implement its climate change program under the Paris Agreement.

This amount was submitted in Fiji’s updated Nationally Determined Contributions given by the Government to the UN.

Nationally Determined Contributions are national plans highlighting climate actions including climate-related targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions, policies and measures governments aim to implement in response to climate change.

Fiji's Nationally Determined Contributions says the brutal economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has placed serious fiscal pressure on Fiji.

It says as a direct result, Fiji’s ability to fund sustainable development, including resilience-building and the pursuit of carbon neutrality has been severely handicapped.
