The mandated role of the High-Level Champions is to catalyse climate action and mobilise non-Party stakeholders in the lead up to 2020.
COP23 Climate Champion and Minister for Defence and National Security Hon. Inia Seruiratu made this statement at the opening of the High Level stocktake on Pre-2020 ambition and implementation opening in Katowice, Poland.
Fiji’s Climate Champion said that there were two important requirements that needed to be recognised.
“Firstly in order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement we need to take climate action as early as possible. Swift actions are urgently needed in this pre-2020 period to set the foundation for the realisation of the Paris goals,” Seruiratu said.
