The Pacific Small Island Developing States chair and  President of the Republic of Nauru, Baron Divavesi Waqa,  has praised Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama’s leadership.

“I would also like to recognise the leadership of our gracious host, the Honourable Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who has been working hard to raise the prominence of our region on the international stage,” President Waqa said yesterday.

“After chairing the Group of 77 and China and co-hosting the UN Oceans Conference and now holding the presidency of the Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC.”

Fiji he said had made sure that the voice of the Pacific had never been stronger.

He said for many years, the Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS) had been sounding the alarm about the negative impacts of climate change.

“Our global perspective on the need for concerted action by all nations, has been informed by a unique and eminently local experience,” President Waqa said.

“We have long understood the vulnerability of human settlements and fragile ecosystems to extreme events and we must now bear witness to the dangerous impacts of climate change that are already happening.”
