New co-ordinated approach for Pacific disaster & climate concerns

Updated 4 June 2014, 14:38 AEST

Non-government and government groups in the Pacific have been working hard on a region-wide Strategy for Climate and Disaster Resilient Development.

All key stakeholders and national agencies in the fields of weather, climate services, climate change and disaster risk management have been meeting in Suva to have their final input to the latest draft.

The strategy aims to strengthen climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, encourage low carbon development and boost levels of disaster preparedness in terms of response and recovery.

Tagaloa Cooper-Halo, Climate Change Coordination Adviser at SPREP, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme says it's been a big undertaking.
