Islanders wants Gov’t to pay visit and see the effects of Climate Change

Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 22 June 2018

“PEOPLE of the Lord Howe atolls in Malaita are calling on the Government through its responsible line ministries to visit them,to see first-hand the effects of the Climate Change to their lives.

“The call was made, during a recent Climate Change workshop organised under the Community Resilience to Climate and Disaster Risk in Solomon Islands project (CRISP).

“This project was under the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management and Meteorology(MECDM), and the workshop wasmainly for the three islands Pelau, Sikaiana, and Liuaniuwa.

“After being informed of the proposed project (CRISP) and the possible visit to their islands, a participant Lawrence Makili said that the responsible people should also visit them, to see and feel what is happening to their lives today, as a result of the changing climate.

“…if the government through its responsible ministries also joined the team to come to the islands here, that would be great.

“This must happen, so that they can actually see for themselves the very issues faced and to see on what areas they can assist,” Makili said.”
