AFTER days of discussions, Fiji negotiators have successfully concluded a new work program at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Doha, Qatar.

The new program will address issues relating to climate education, training and awareness in Fiji.

Fiji's participation at the negotiations reaffirms the importance of taking into account gender aspects and the need to promote the effective engagement of children, youths, the elderly, women, people living with disabilities and indigenous peoples.

In a statement from Doha, Fiji delegation media representative Peni Namotu said the convention outcome identified a gap in the need for climate change training and education to be targeted and tailored for all levels of society including those with disabilities.

"Fiji's Climate Change Policy has gender as one of its eight pillars. The new program insists on government to foster the participation of all stakeholders in its implementation report on their activities, in particular, the active participation of youth, women, civil society organisations and the media," Mr Namotu said.
