Pacific countries may set up huge climate change fund
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 14 August 2018
“The Pacific Islands Forum summit in Nauru next month will consider the region pooling resources to create a US$1.5 billion climate change fund.
“The aim is for this money to be used by states to build their own infrastructure.
“The secretary general of the Pacific Islands Forum, Dame Meg Taylor, said such a fund would allow Pacific nation to strengthen their infrastructure, so they are prepared for disaster instead of waiting for it to happen and then asking for help.
“She said they will be looking for donors to back the idea.”
