Impact of climate change on Pacific Small Island States
16 Feb 2010
Executive Secretary Noeleen Heyzer speaks with Australia Newsline's Jim Middleton. The interview was held during her meeting with Pacific leaders in Port Vila Vanuatu where discussions focused on issues of climate change and opportunities for boosting economic growth. Dr. Heyzer states that, post Copenhagen, there is a real chance for Small Island States to consolidate their voice in the lead up to meetings in Mexico. The interview covers topics from the possible relocation of people in the Pacific (who may loose their homelands as climate refuges) to the need for better policies on renewable energies and climate migration.
