The Deputy Foreign Minister thanked the SPREP delegation which briefed them on SPREP's preparations, and assured them that this would be the first of many regular visits to the region, as a symbol of their commitment to connect to the commonly shared concerns over climate change and oceans management.
Professor Hviding also outlined some practical first steps that could be taken jointly in ensuring that climate change science information from the Pacific islands is elevated to the level of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The delegation left Samoa on Thursday.
