Climate Action Commissioner to participate in Pacific Island Forum meeting, visit Philippines


Commissioner Hedegaard mentioned: “It is my ambition to make the European Union and the Pacific area companions in advancing the worldwide weather alternate schedule. The Pacific area can depend on Europe’s weather cooperation and ambition. We depend at the Pacific area to assist us bringing all different main economies on board of an formidable long run weather regime to be finalized in 2015.There is not any time to lose if we would like to steer clear of that devastating climate-driven screw ups transform the brand new standard.”

The PIF, based in 1971, is the Pacific area’s main political and financial coverage establishment.  This yr’s assembly has the name ‘Marshalling the Pacific Response to the Climate Challenge.’

As neatly as collaborating in the formal assembly of the PIF, Commissioner Hedegaard will meet bilaterally with a number of Pacific island leaders. These conferences will focal point at the results of weather alternate in the area in addition to on growth in global negotiations in opposition to finalising a brand new global weather settlement in 2015 and stepping up international weather motion prior to 2020.

In Manila Commissioner Hedegaard’s programme will come with conferences with President Benigno Aquino, with representatives of the Philippines Climate Change Commission, and with the control of the Asian Development Bank. She will actually have a lunch assembly with representatives of Philippine civil society.
