Hope for policy

FOREIGN Affairs permanent secretary Amena Yauvoli hopes the government and the public are committed to the implementation of the National Climate Change Policy which was launched in March last year.

Mr Yauvoli, who spoke at the opening of the National Climate Change Co-ordination Committee meeting in Suva last week, said the climate change unit provided the co-ordination for the implementation of all climate change-related activities.

"The important roles of climate change unit are to provide policy advice, national communication reporting, clean development mechanism project implementation and national awareness and promotions of climate change issues," Mr Yauvoli said.

"It is important to note that a National Climate Change Summit was held in Labasa last year with a view of exploring ways in which we can work together to strengthen resilience of our communities."

Mr Yauvoli said the summit provided a forum for information and knowledge-sharing as a means of addressing gaps, fostering partnerships and promoting climate-smart solutions.
