Pacific Islands Forum Statement: Blue Pacific’s Call for Urgent Global Climate Change Action

Leaders of the Pacific Islands Forum warmly welcome the United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, to our Blue Pacific region - to witness the everyday reality of climate change and drive momentum in the lead up to his Climate Action Summit in September.As we approach the 25th iteration of the Conference of the Parties, it is difficult to find new words, new anecdotes, new experiences to press our Blue Pacific message - but our commitment to multilateralism is unwavering, as is our commitment to continue the fight for a safer climate for a safer world.At the Climate Action Summit, platitudes and repackaged commitments cannot be the substance of our deliberations. We need transformational change at scale, and courageous leaders prepared to deliver on it.Leaders of the Pacific commit to doing all we can to make the Climate Action Summit a global turning point for ambitious climate change action.We ask the United Nations Secretary-General to share our message with the world:The Blue Pacific – our great ocean continent, our thousands of islands, our strong and resilient people – is running out of time.We need to act now. Our survival, and that of this great Blue Pacific continent depend on it.
