15 May Pacific Calling Partnership continues to advocate for action on climate change
They may be beautiful holiday destinations, but Pacific Islands such as Kiribati and Tuvalu are facing serious threat from the changing climate. A number of factors human-induced climate factors have contributed to more tropical storms and severe storm surges, and higher king tides that are damaging soil quality and leading to the death of important food sources.
The Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) was formed in response to this climate change, in the hopes of supporting and advocating for the Pacific nations, as well as educating the Australian public about the effects of climate change through workshops and talks.
The PCP also supports the islands in their appearances at international conferences such as the 2015 Paris conference, as well as supporting the efforts of Pacific Island communities to make their voices heard through training programs for young activists.
They also collaborate with people, governments and organisations who work on raising awareness of the impacts of climate change, both in the Pacific and more broadly.
