THE United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change executive secretary Christiana Figueres highlights that Fiji has the capacity and capability to lead the United Nations Group of 77.

Ms Figueres was part of the National Climate Change Co-ordinating Committee meeting held at the Holiday Inn in Suva yesterday.

She assured Fiji of the United Nations Framework convention support during Fiji's tenure as chairman of the United Nations Group of 77 (G77).

Ms Figueres said the convention on climate change secretariat had no doubt that Fiji had the capacity and capability to lead this group, which consisted of more than 130 countries in the world.

"The secretariat is always ready to come in and assist Fiji should you require assistance from the secretariat, especially in decisionmaking in policy and implementing strategies during Fiji's tenure as chair of the G77," she said.

Ms Figueres said Fiji needed to implement strategies in leaving no stone unturned in advancing the issues of the G77.

"You have many friends within the G77 to support and help Fiji."
