COP26 President Alok Sharma

COP26 President Alok Sharma will begin his official visit to Fiji from tomorrow, visiting a village to see firsthand the impacts of climate change.

He will visit Buretu village in Tailevu, to witness how climate change is affecting the lives of Fijians.

The village is suffering from severe weather events driven by climate change, including regular flooding which causes significant damage to property, crops and village land.

Despite these impacts, the villagers have chosen to remain in place and fight to keep their homes.
