USP is playing a leading role in utilising participatory approaches to climate change communication, according to the Fiji State of Media and Communications report 2013.

The report said the USP had been using community networks, school programs, including adding climate change to the curriculum and a climate zone completion to raise awareness.

The USP's Pacific Centre for the Environment and Sustainable Development (PACE-SD) expressed gratitude and appreciated the fact that its hard work was recognised in the report.

PACE-SD director Professor Elisabeth Holland said: "In total we have done vulnerability assessments in more than 200 communities in 15 countries throughout the region."
