At UN Arria Formula on "Sea-level rise and implications for international peace and security," @FijiMissionUN (Pacific Islands Forum) cites the "profond connection" to the sea, underscored by UNCLOS, which is now under dramatic threat. Cites deep commitment to safeguard homes.

.@FijiPM 🇫🇯 The slow and catastrophic impacts of climate change is most directly felt by Pacific’s 🌏farmers and fishers through persistent and worsening food insecurity. They look to their leaders with hope to deliver a sustainable future @cop26. Happy World Food Day
On #WordFoodDay my thoughts are with farmers who are losing crops, fisher-folk who are losing catch, and all those whose livelihoods are at-risk due to climate-driven disasters. Climate security is food security — and at @COP26 we have to fight for both.
