ACP focuses on island countries’ climate plight

The ACP Group announced concrete steps being taken to address the specific challenges of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), including the serious threats of climate change to people’s livelihoods, cultures, economic development, and even more critically, their survival in coming generations. Addressing leaders of the Pacific Island members of the ACP Group today, the ACP Secretary General H.E. Dr. Patrick Gomes said: “We fully share the concerns of the Pacific peoples regarding the existential threats posed by climate change (…) I strongly urge Pacific ACP leaders to continue their support and active participation in the ACP Group, so that together we can better represent the Pacific’s interests in Brussels and beyond, in areas such as poverty reduction, climate change mitigation and adaptation, international trade negotiations, and sustainable utilisation of natural resource.”
