Welcome Ceremony for Climate Action Pacific Partnership

Pacific island leaders that have arrived for the inaugural Climate Action Pacific Partnership event were accorded a traditional ceremony of welcome at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva. The event was organised in recognition of the need to support and strengthen the participation of Pacific Small Island Developing Sates (P-SIDS) in the global climate action agenda. The aim of the CAPP event was to bring together relevant stakeholders to promote the exchange of ideas, innovations, and solutions. It sought to discover transformative outcomes and initiatives to boost climate action in the Pacific, and to help inspire urgently needed increases in ambition and action elsewhere. The CAPP event was a part of a program of activities of the High Level Champions appointed under the Paris Agreement, hosted by Fiji’s High-Level Champion Minister Hon. Inia Seruiratu.
