The UN Special Envoy for Climate Change, Mary Robinson, was pleased with the way people were acting against climate change.

With Nadi having a special flood reading meter situated at the Nadi Bridge Mrs Robinson said such technologies were vital tools.

While visiting some areas in Nadi which are prone to flooding she was surprised on how flooding is being monitored in the country.

“I am pleased with the way the programme is working because it uses local people and local men here and also it is part of the system and in particularly has helped women to become part of the programme and become part of the decision making and I’m very supportive of that.

“I enjoyed visiting Fiji very much and I was glad to be able to participate in the forum which went very well.”
