Talanoa Dialogue Closing, Maria Nailevu

BONN, Germany (May 08, 2018) – Maria Nailevu of DIVA for Equality, in Talanoa Dialogue Closing, shared her reality, her story of women in Fiji standing at the forefront of climate change. As a diverse woman in a frontline community to climate change, disasters are becoming more frequent and aggressive. Everything in the science and our daily experience tells that we are so late as current commitments lead us to a 3 degree+ rise scenario. She asked Parties to urgently lay out the political process for ensuring the Talanoa Dialogue, including clear activities at the next session in Bangkok leading to real enhancement of ambition, via support and stepped up NDCs, in the context of equity and justice.
