Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today outlined Fiji’s vision for COP23 in Bonn, Germany for November.
While addressing COP consultations in Bonn, Bainimarama says Fiji’s vision is to advance the work of the UN framework convention on climate change and preserve the multilateral consensus for decisive action to address the underlying causes of climate change, respecting climate science.
Bainimarama says Fiji will also uphold and advance the Paris agreement, ensure progress on the implementation guidelines and undertake consultations together with the Moroccan COP22 Presidency to design the process for the Facilitative Dialogue in 2018.
He says that he will also infuse COP23 with the Fijian “Bula Spirit” of inclusiveness, friendliness and solidarity and promote the Pacific concept of talanoa.
Bainimarama adds that they are in discussions with a number of countries and organizations regarding additional financial assistance and are thankful to those countries that have assisted.
