Prime Minister and Chair of the Pacific Islands Forum Voreqe Bainimarama has welcomed New Zealand’s announcement at COP 27 to provide finance for Loss and Damage.

In a tweet, Bainimarama stated the Pacific is proud to see New Zealand lead on loss and damage finance.

The Prime Minister adds that there’s no adapting to the loss of islands and communities, and it’s past time that developed nations stopped subsidizing fossil fuels and started supporting those who will lose the most to this crisis.
