The Pacific Climate Warriors Declaration on Climate Change

We are calling for world leaders to commit to building a better, more just world for ourselves and for generations to come. Climate change is real and impacting now, and it's imperative that we stand up for the Pacific, and the global community, and act now to avoid further climate catastrophe. This COP should be about the people, not the profits and the polluters. Read the full Declaration here.

We call on the world to:

    1. End the era of fossil fuels and move to 100% renewable energy.
    2. Kick the big polluters out of the climate talks.
    3. Support the immediate delivery of finance needed for countries already facing irreversible loss and damage.
    4. Do what is needed to limit warming to 1.5°C.

 

This year, with Fiji confirmed as the President of COP 23, the Pacific region will show the world what true climate leadership is. We will highlight for the world what climate change in the Pacific looks like and how inaction on climate change exacerbates that threat.

As Pacific Climate Warriors from across the Pacific region representing various grassroots, frontline and indigenous communities, and with support from around the world, we are calling for world leaders to commit to building a better, more just world for ourselves and for generations to come.

In order to do this, we call for:
  1. The immediate phase-out of existing fossil fuels, and the banning of all new, existing and planned expansions of fossil fuel infrastructure with commitments to rapidly transitioning towards 100% renewable energy, by no later than 2050.
  2. The delivery of support and finance needed for countries already facing irreversible loss and damage brought about by climate change, as well as the immediate establishment of adaptation mechanisms to cope with ongoing climate impacts.
  3. The prohibition of the fossil fuel industry from participating in the UNFCCC processes so that they can no longer delay, weaken and block action on climate change.
  4. The actioning of everything the Paris Agreement called for, including international efforts to ensure global average temperatures do not exceed 1.5 degrees from pre-industrial levels.
  5. Climate change is real and impacting now, and it's imperative that we stand up for the Pacific, and the global community, and act now to avoid further climate catastrophe. This COP should be about the people, not the profits and the polluters.
