Fiji’s High Level Climate Action champion, Inia Seruiratu, has met with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat Team in Bonn, Germany.

The meeting provided the opportunity for the Minister Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management to get a general briefing/orientation on the spectrum of the Champion’s role including organisational and operational issues as well as a general awareness on the landscape of the Secretariat’s work.

The UNFCCC Secretariat Team was led by Richard Kinley, Deputy Executive Secretary, Halldor Thorgeirsson, senior director for Intergovernmental Affairs, Conor Barry, team leader in the Secretariat’s Global Climate Action Team and Daniele Violetti, chief-of-staff for the Executive Secretary’s office.

The meeting/briefing, inter alia, also discussed some of the challenges pertaining to the champion’s roles as well as learning from some of the success stories.

The briefing also covered overall preparatory works for the upcoming Capacity Building and Planning Workshop which is scheduled to take place in Fiji later this month.

This will fully brief and prepare the Fiji Team in its Presidency role for the COP23 which will be held in Bonn, Germany, from November 6-17, 2017 with the intentions of having a successful and memorable event.

Mr Seruiratu was supported by Ambassador Deo Saran and First Secretary, Mesake Ledua, from the Brussels Embassy.
