COP23

Published in 2017 October

Bula vinaka and greetings from Fiji. We approach COP23 in November with the global community at a crossroads in our collective response to climate change. The choices we make now will decide the fate of our planet and have a huge impact on the lives of all 7.5 billion people on earth.

So it is vital that every global citizen is aware of what is at stake and what needs to be done to avert catastrophe. I assume the COP23 Presidency as the first leader of a Pacific Small Island Developing State to be given charge of the ongoing UN climate negotiations.

In doing so, I will be giving voice to the concerns and aspirations of one of the most climate vulnerable regions on earth. It is a great honour and a great responsibility and I seek your prayers and support. But I am eager to embrace the challenge in the knowledge that my fellow Pacific Islanders and billions of people around the world are looking to me for leadership, along with the rest of the Fijian COP team.
