Fiji Sun is one of only two Fijian news organisations to have a journalist in Glasgow covering the crucially important COP26 climate conference.

Managing Editor Digital and Readership Development Rosi Doviverata was due to arrive in Scotland overnight after flying out from Nadi on Saturday,

Fijian Broadcasting Corporation news manager Indra Singh is also on his way.

Ms Doviverata will continue the Fiji Sun’s unmatched commitment to climate coverage.

Fiji Sun was the only Fijian news media to have a journalist at both the World Ocean Summit and COP23. Managing Editor News Jyoti Pratibha was in New York and Bonn to cover both these events.

Developed pages

Fiji Sun Publisher/CEO Peter Lomas said Ms Doviverata has since developed the climate reporting pages which have become a Fiji Sun feature. Fiji Sun had done more on climate coverage than any other Pacific Islands news organisation.

The British High Commission was impressed. Especially so with the government of the Unit- ed Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ire- land hosting COP26.

British support

So impressed, they agreed to fund Ms Doviverata to COP26 as a result. The British sup- port would enable Ms Doviverata to be there throughout. This would enable Fiji Sun readers to get unmatched coverage from an out- standing editor fully engaged in the climate story.

“This is a wonderful gesture from the British High Commission,” Mr Lomas said. “They have gone out of their way to make sure Fijian readers do not miss out.”

Mr Lomas said the British support meant Fijian readers would get reporting from a Fijian perspective by a Fijian editor who specialised in this. As well the Fiji Sun would be providing coverage to other daily newspapers in the region with which it has close links.

China help

Additionally Ms Doviverata had received support from the Chinese Embassy in Suva to enable her to go with upgraded equipment.

“China has always been supportive of news media development here,” Mr Lomas said.

“They provide outstanding support with no strings attached.”
