PM welcomes Green Climate Fund opportunities

The Prime Minister has welcomed the commitment by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to provide finance for addressing the effects of climate change in Papua New Guinea.

In a recent meeting with the GCF chairman, Ewen McDonald, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill highlighted the need for finance and capacity building to enable PNG to implement its obligations under the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

“Our nation and the region faces serious threats from extreme weather exacerbated by climate change,” the Prime Minister said.

“Developing countries did not cause climate change, but we all suffer because of climate change.

“It is important that industrialised countries contribute to projects that will help to protect our communities from the effects of climate change.”
