“It’s time for us to wake up and correct our course by taking concrete steps towards a secure future. Each and every country must review its nationally determined contributions and develop short, medium and long-term strategies to achieve higher ambition in their climate action plans.”

This was the message by Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama during his address at the opening of the High Level Meeting on the Protection of the Global Climate for Present & Future Generations of Humankind in the Context of the Economic, Social and Environmental Dimensions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development held at the United Nations head quarters in New York.

Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama told leaders after many discussions, agreements and nationally determined contributions; collective targets have us on a path not to 1.5 degrees, not to two degrees, but to at least three degrees of global warming above pre-industrial times.

“This simply isn’t good enough. We’re asleep at the wheel and we’re headed for disaster. It’s time for us to wake up and correct our course by taking concrete steps towards a secure future.”

“Each and every country must review its nationally determined contributions and develop short, medium and long-term strategies to achieve higher ambition in their climate action plans. And nations must support greater financing and assistance for developing countries – in line with what has been promised – to help unlock the needed levels of ambition, as well as build resilience.”
