27 April 2022, Honolulu, Hawai’i Climate change is not something that will occur in the future. For people living in the Pacific, it is something they are facing already.
The reminder came from the Director General of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), Mr Sefanaia Nawadra during the Pacific Islands Climate Change Forum (PICCF) last week.
The three-day event was designed to present objective, user-relevant information about the current and future climate in the Pacific. It was attended by more than 100 participants joining virtually from around the Pacific region and the world.
Speaking during the official opening of the PICCF, Mr Nawadra highlighted the need for climate science and information to inform policies and decision-making.
