The Pacific must lead climate action

Posted on 07 March 2022

Ms ‘Ofa Ma’asi-Kaisamy, Manager of the Pacific Climate Change Centre (PCCC) stated at the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Programme (SPREP) in Apia, Samoa, that the recent IPCC report is a consistent reminder of the current and future climate change risks faced by Pacific Island communities.
“Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. The IPCC reports confirmed the urgency for global climate actions. Our Pacific countries are the least responsible for global warming and biodiversity loss, yet we are facing the harshest consequences that will continue to worsen in years to come. Our future is uncertain if the world fails to pay attention to the warnings in the report,” said Ms Kaisamy.
