Ambassador Colin Beck

Solomon Islands negotiator encouraged by draft Paris Outcome

“The most important thing for the Pacific is that most of our key positions - below 1.5 degrees limit in global temperature rises, loss and damage, five year commitment, adaptation and financing are cemented in the proposed agreement, said Ambassador Beck.

Going forward, the challenge on our ministers is to ‘manage and defend these key asks to ensure that whenever these issues come up in the negotiations, they are not diluted but strengthened.’
