Pacific Scoop Report – By Niklas Pedersen in Suva

Seven Pacific leaders have signed a strong document on climate change in Fiji, mapping out what they want to achieve at COP 21 in Paris later this year.

Meeting for three days last week, the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF) leaders said they were speaking with “one voice” on their demands for action.

Host Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama of Fiji described the Suva Declaration as an historic document and UN Special Envoy for Climate Change Mary Robinson called it a “strong statement”.

Niklas Pedersen and Kai Ping Lew are postgraduate student journalists from AUT University on the Asia-Pacific Journalism course. They are in Fiji on a two-week internship with Repúblika Magazine and Wansolwara and will also file a series of reports for Pacific Scoop about their experience.
