Forum Economic Ministers to Discuss Investments to Build Resilient Ocean States

The repercussions of a warming planet are increasing both in intensity and in frequency. This is the case whether they are extreme, sudden, or slow onset weather and climate events. Either way they demand nothing less than innovative actions, and strengthened collaboration and cooperation of all stakeholders. Key to how our region responds to climate change and extreme weather events and their impacts on our island homes and our resources is the nature and extent of our resilience. It requires Pacific Islands Forum members to invest in pathways towards economic, social, and environmental resilience. It requires our Governments to complement their respective approaches with input and contributions from development partners, including the private sector, who are key to resource mobilisation and to implementation. It also requires civil society to play a key role, to ensure effective links between policies and practice are well established and they endure.
