Pacific Climate Change Conference Turns Words into Action

Pacific Climate Change Conference Turns Words into ActionThe fight to build a more resilient Pacific in the face of climate change has taken a major step forward with the official partnering between the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Victoria University of Wellington today.

Victoria University Provost Wendy Larner and SPREP Director General Leota Kosi Latu signed a Memorandum of Understanding, marking the end of the University’s successful three-day Pacific Climate Change Conference.

The agreement will see the two organisations working together towards environmental protection and sustainable development in the Pacific.
The Memorandum creates a framework in which the University and SPREP can co-operate on activities of mutual interest such as coral research, climate change research, and enhancing biosecurity.

Professor Larner described signing the Memorandum as an historic occasion. “Something really powerful is beginning,” she says.
