It is a great honour for Fiji to receive the baton from Morocco of the presidency of COP. And assume the responsibility for implementing the Paris Agreement and prepare the way for more ambitious climate action.
Life will get better if we replace dirty energy with clean energy. Life will get better if our soils are more productive. Life will get better if our oceans are healthy and less acidic. Life will get better if we can protect our forests and plant more. Life will get better if we have green buildings, not inefficient ones.
I urge all of you to incorporate sustainability into your business plans. It is imperative that we realize the importance of a sustainable and green economy. For the future of Fiji’s economy and the future of our children, we must strike a balance between development and sustainability.
Congratulations on your 50th Anniversary. As you look to the next 50 years, I assure you that my Government will continue to support the development of your resort and your partnership with the Fijian people. I wish you all a wonderful celebration.
I want to say how gratified and pleased I am as incoming COP president at the overwhelmingly positive comments I have received from so many of you about this Pre-COP.
Inspired by Fiji's Presidency of COP23, the Fijian Government, with the support of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), will bring renewable energy to eligible rural communities across the country.
We also know that when women are well represented in decision-making processes, their ability to share skills and knowledge strengthens our collective effort to face the challenge of climate change.
We can no longer ignore this crisis. Whether it is fires in California, Portugal and Spain. Flooding in Nigeria, India and Bangladesh. The dramatic Arctic melt. Ice breaking off the continent of Antarctica. The recent hurricanes that devastated the Caribbean and the southern United States.
The Fijian COP23 Presidency created this innovative gathering in order to bring together representatives of all the local, regional and international players to move this process forward. This is what we mean by the Grand Coalition that we are helping to build to enable us to stay within the 1.5 degrees. We are bringing together those who have the power to deliver our objective.
I’ve taken on the COP23 Presidency, because we cannot sit idly by while industrialised nations continue to make this crisis even worse. And I will be demanding bold and decisive action on this issue in Bonn this November, as we seek the full implementation of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
