‘Wrong For Victims Of Climate Change To Pay Own Relocation’

It was morally unjust, wrong, for victims of climate change to pay for their own relocation, says Fiji’s Permanent Representa­tive to the United Nations, Dr Saty­endra Prasad.

Mr Prasad made the comment during a side event at the Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion in Sharm El-Sheikh while highlighting that 48 communities in Fiji were in the process of relocating because of sea level rise affecting their daily livelihoods.

The Fijian Government is in the process of relocating 48 communi­ties that are on the frontline of sea level rise, and adaptation was just too late.
