New Zealand’s Ambassador for Climate Change, Kay Harrison has met with the Attorney-General and Minister responsible for Climate Change, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum on her first dedicated climate change visit to the Pacific.

During the meeting, Ambassador Harrison expressed New Zealand’s intention to assist Fiji in accessing climate finance – particularly through their newly announced climate aid contribution of NZ$1.3 billion over four years to support countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

She also conveyed her gratitude towards Fiji’s great leadership in the climate change space through years of strong commitment and delivery, emphasising Fiji’s groundbreaking climate change legislation – the Climate Change Act.

The AG highlighted Fiji’s heightened vulnerability to climate change and the recent mitigation and adaptation strategies undertaken by the Fijian Government - including the construction of climate-resilient infrastructure such as underground cabling.

He also emphasised the importance of accessing affordable climate finance and the support of bilateral partners, such as New Zealand, to assist Fiji in delivering its climate change commitments.
