The New Zealand government aims to strengthen its network with Fiji to further highlight the impacts of climate change of small Pacific Island countries.
This was highlighted by the New Zealand High Commissioner Jonathan Curre during the launch of the ‘Far From Frozen’ Climate Change Exhibition at the Suva City Library Tuesday.
Curr says the exhibition is expected to equip the general public on the notion of climate change.
“At the recent Pacific Islands Forum meeting in Tuvalu, Prime Minister Ardern announced that New Zealand has ring-fenced NZD$150 million (US$96 million) for climate change-related initiatives in and with the Pacific. We will continue to partner with Fiji in this work”.
Meanwhile, Director of the Otago Museum Dr Craig Grant says more collaboration is needed to counter climate change effects across the region.
“That we thought look, how can we take this in the Pacific islands, they really are the nations at the forefront of the impacts of climate change”.
The exhibition ends this Friday and will roll out in Rakiraki and Lautoka over the next two weeks.
