Fiji will continue to listen, lead and lend our perspective on implementing the New Urban Agenda.
We will continue to prove that adapting to climate impacts and slashing emissions are the surest pathway to vibrant urban economies.
While delivering his remarks during the New Urban Agenda to Drive Sustainable Change session along the margins of the 10th World Urban Forum in Abu Dhabi this morning, Prime Minister Honourable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama said Fiji is confidently building strong, sustainable and inclusive Fijian cities of the future.
“With every Fijian we lift from poverty, every woman leader we empower, every young person we elevate, every effort we make to strengthen our resilience and with every innovation we pioneer, we make ourselves stronger,” he said.
“Through this show of strength, we hope to inform and inspire the rest of the world’s work in building sustainable and resilient communities, cities, countries– and most vitally– a sustainable and resilient world.”
