Your Excellencies,

Bula Vinaka and a very good morning to you all.

Nothing is more important to us as climate-vulnerable nations than to have the means to adequately adapt to the frightening new era that is upon us - the extreme weather events, rising seas and changes to agriculture caused by climate change.

The Commissioner Central Division, Provincial Administrator, District Officer, invited distinguished guests, relevant stakeholders, media personnel, ministry staff, ladies and gentleman.

Riverbank erosion is a growing problem for local communities in Fiji today. Since most of the towns and rural communities in Fiji are situated along riverbanks, they are vulnerable to potential climate change impacts of increasing sea levels, cyclones, and more frequent and intense rainfall. These impacts are threatening the very existence of local communities situated along riverbanks in Fiji.
