Fiji’s Prime Minister, Hon. Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama attended the One Planet Summit in Paris, France, last month. It was co-hosted by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres and President of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim.
The Hon. Prime Minister addressed the High Level Delegates on Segment 1: Amplifying financing towards adaptation and resilience at the One Planet Summit in Paris.
“As COP23 President, Fiji is working hard to promote our Grand Coalition and deliver on the promise of Paris. As I keep stressing, we are all in the same canoe. We are all vulnerable and we all need to act. And as President Macron has said, there is no “planet B”. We have only One Planet to call home and now is the time to move forward together to save it”.
The Hon. Prime Minister emphasized four key points of action; better access to the public finance, essential role of private finance, climate-smart investment opportunities and the need for government and private sector collaboration.
