Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has told participants at the Pacific Islands Development Forum Summit in Honiara that they have set the platform for change.
Climate change is a threat to our culture, our security and our very existence, and that creates a stark reality for individuals and communities he said.
The outgoing PIDF chair said, it is clear that our participants have been fully engaged in our sessions and have offered consistently meaningful insights to addressing the threat of climate change – the greatest single threat facing our world today.
The Prime Minister adding that there is a need to harness all available resources and take advantages of opportunities to work together and share ideas and solutions going forward.
Your voices, your knowledge and your expertise form the backbone of our campaign to alert the world to our peril—and to jolt the industrialised nations into action to save our people and protect our oceans for future generations, he said.
The forum ends today with a Leaders Summit as well as the handing over of the chairmanship to the Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manessah Sogavare.
