Seven postgraduate students from the University of the South Pacific will participate in COP 26 – the United Nations Climate Change Summit in November.
They will support the Fijian, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu Government delegations by observing the negotiations that will be fundamental to securing the future of our planet during the Summit.
The COP 26 event from 1st to 12th next month will be hosted by the United Kingdom in partnership with Italy in Glasgow, Scotland.
The students are supported by the European Union-funded Intra-ACP GCCA+ Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change and Resilience Building project.
Opening the USP virtual pre COP 26 training, Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education, Professor Jito Vanualailai acknowledged the on-going financial support and says USP continues to build the capacity of young climate change leaders in the Pacific Island countries.
