The Fijian government has thanked the European Union for embracing the ‘Talanoa Dialogue’ as an important vehicle to raise ambition in the fight against climate change.
Speaking at the EU for Talanoa Conference in Brussels, Fiji’s Climate Ambassador Deo Saran reminded the delegates that Talanoa Dialogue is not an exercise in finger pointing or for the exercise of naked power in which winners takes all.
Saran says instead, it is about the respectful exchange of ideas and best practices to reach decisions for common good.
He reminded that it’s also not a talkfest, merely to give the participants a warm inner glow.
The Fiji’s Ambassador to the EU says Talanoa Dialogue is to produce concrete action to raise the ambition of our Nationally Determined Contributions and other efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Saran says the multilateral consensus for decisive climate action has been under threat for some time.
He says more than ever, the entire global community must stand shoulder to shoulder to confront the climate threat.
Saran adds that everyone must embark on the journey towards net zero carbon economies by 2050 by embracing all opportunities.
