These protection works will give you back your security and allow you to go about your lives without living in fear of worsening flooding. It includes the construction of eight boulder groyne works, which will be carried out at a cost of over 984,000 Dollars. My Government is covering that cost entirely.  
Your Royal Highness, you’ll have to forgive us if there are a few tired faces in the crowd today. Many of us were up quite late last night, watching our national sevens team take a first-place finish at the Hong Kong Sevens –– the fifth time in a row we’ve won the tournament. It seems you’ve brought some luck along with you, so vinaka!  
In Fijian history, we’ve never seen a programme such as this be made available to our landowners. This initiative was pursued by my Government because we recognised a very simple problem. Many of our landowners had huge assets at their disposal, they had large amounts of land, but they didn’t have enough cash at their disposal to develop that land for their benefit.

And while I may not be a young man anymore, you’ve inspired me as well. Your huge smiles and your positive energy are contagious; in the face of any hardship or obstacle that life has thrown at you, those smiles shine through it all. It puts all of this week’s heated debates in Parliament into perspective –– we are truly blessed to be fighting for Fijians like you.
The mission of the Working Group on Information Technology Audit (WGITA) “is to support Supreme Audit Institutions in developing their knowledge and skills in the use of information technology related audits by providing information and facilities for exchange of experiences, sharing best practices, and encouraging bilateral and regional cooperation among SAIs”.
In Fiji, we already have a glimpse into the future of what the world will be suffering from if global temperatures continue to rise. We Fijians are all too familiar with strengthening storms and rising seas. That’s why it’s so important for Fiji to lend its voice to the global stage, ringing the alarm bells for the rest of the world to wake up to the need for action now before it’s too late.
 For us, climate change is more than a challenge – it is an immense threat, which threatens the very existence of some of our number. And some of our islands are still recovering, years later, from devastating cyclones that claimed the lives of many of our people and wreaked havoc on our economies.
Storms of this ferocity, which were once a generational occurrence, are now a new normal. With our planet sitting only at one degree above pre-industrial levels, this is the reality we are already faced with.
By the time we reconvene for the UN Secretary General’s Summit in September, the majority of the world’s countries must come with realistic and concrete plans for three things: for their next round of NDCs in 2020, for halving emissions by 2030 and for reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. We cannot accept anything less. I’ve seen with my own eyes the devastation of the climate impacts already upon us. If we fail, those impacts will grow far more severe, inflicting unparalleled suffering on humanity, not only in Fiji, not only in the Pacific, but on every person, everywhere on the planet.  
The goal of the Paris Agreement is to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Following the release of IPCC’s report last year, we now know just how much that half a degree matters. For Fiji, as a champion nation for vulnerable people the world over, we know that when it comes to accessing clean water, that half a degree difference in global temperature can mean the very difference between life and death for millions of people.
