As part of their commitment, they donated 15 per cent of the
gate takings towards Government COP23 and Climate change efforts.
Vueti Delai Trust chairman Emosi Cagi climate change has
badly affected their village.
“We are representing
seven families here covering less than 100 numbers of families we saw the
importance of us involving in climate change and COP 23,” Mr Cagi said.
“In our village we
can physically see the damages taking place due to climate change, that is why
when we found out that Fiji is taking part in born we were very happy.”
Executive director of COP 23 John Connor said, “This is a
wonderful example of how Fijians at every level joining in the team effort to
tackle climate change to do that with the local level, to do that at the
national level but also to linking in and supporting the global effort that
Fiji is leading this year with COP 23.”
