"Help Pacific with climate change, NGO urges
Monday, August 18, 2008
Update: 10:20AM A group of over 100 non-government organisations is calling for Australia and New Zealand to do more to help the Pacific with climate change ahead of this week's Pacific Islands Leadership Forum.
Radio Australia reports that a letter setting out an action plan for dealing with the displacement of Pacific Islanders has been sent to Australia's Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and the New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark.
The leaders will be discussing climate change at a meeting in New Zealand tomorrow before the forum.
Damien Lawson, from Friends of the Earth Australia, said both countries need concrete plans for resettlement and migration."
