Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says he is proud to say that the region is rising to the challenge of climate change.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says he is proud to say that the region is rising to the challenge of climate change – from raising the ambition of our Nationally Determined Contribution Hub to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and by making our infrastructure more resilient to committing to sustainable development and the goal of a blue economy for the Pacific.

While launching the Regional Pacific Nationally Determined Contribution Hub's Strategy 2030, Bainimarama says we have known for a long time that we are nowhere close to putting the world on a pathway to keep global warming to 1.5°C by the end of this century.

He further says it is a deeply troubling fact, but it cannot be a pretext for losing hope adding that on the contrary, we need a greater commitment by large carbon emitters to reduce greenhouse gases.

Bainimarama says the Strategy 2030 reflects the fact that climate action and sustainable development are inseparable.

He adds as we rebuild our economies from the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, climate investments present a unique opportunity for Pacific economies to build back better and ensure a green, blue, and inclusive recovery.
