Prime Minister praises climate change report card
The Government has commended the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s (M.N.R.E.) initiative to compile a Quarterly Climate Change Report Card.
The quarterly report contains data “from rainfall to sea level rise as well as tropical cyclone depressions information complemented by Project Financing for Governments’ Climate Change Resilience Drive”.
During the Cabinet Development Committee (C.D.C.) meeting, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi ordered the report to be a regular fixture tabled before the C.D.C. monthly meetings.
“Climate change remains as the universal concern and the report contains data that every government sector must be made aware of," Tuilaepa said.
“This report will serve not only as a reminder to all government officials but to be used as valuable motivational information for us to do everything that we can to contribute to the universal struggle against climate change.
“The last world leaders meeting in Paris concluded that leaders are not doing enough to tackle the climate change threat and every little step counts,” Tuilaepa said.
