Asia Pacific broadcasters meet on climate change

Monday, February 05, 2018

Update: 1:47PM TWO hundred and fifty media and climate change experts from the Asia and Pacific regions meet in Nadi this week to discuss ways to use the media to build resilient communities.

Split into two sub-events, the group meets for the 4th Media Summit on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction and the 2018 Pacific Media Partnership Conference at the Sheraton Resort from February 5-7.

According to the invitation issued from the Attorney General's office in August 2017, the event is being organised by the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union in collaboration with the Fijian Government as well as Fiji Television and Fiji Broadcasting Corporation.

"The Media Summit will focus on accelerating climate change adaptation and disaster risk preparedness for small island nations through the media," the AG's letter stated.

"Additionally, the media conference will focus on challenges and opportunities in the digital era and how best broadcasters in the region can continue to offer broadcast services by augmenting public free-to-air."

The conference, opened this morning by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, is expected to include disaster risk management experts and technical experts.
