Pacific Islands Forum Secretary General Henry Puna has raised his disappointment at interest groups that were hampering the process of transition to clean and renewable energy, using global events as a pretext for lack of change.

While speaking at the COP27 high level ple­nary, he said: “We are losing precious time. We cannot afford to delay, while our people in the Pacific battle increasingly severe climate change impacts.

We have all heard of science. We have all heard your commitments. Now we need to see your action: Scale-up ambi­tious actions to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.”
