Prime Minister and COP23 President, Voreqe Bainimarama has stressed the importance of participation of young people and women in climate dialogue.
He made the statement while delivering his welcoming remarks at the 6th Dialogue on Action for Climate Empowerment in Bonn, Germany.
“Many of you will have stories that will contribute to this important discussion, but let me just stress two areas of particular interest to Fiji – empowering our young people and empowering our women.
