From , 5:05 am on 30 July 2018

New Zealand's Minister for Climate Change says a united Pacific voice is coming together to drive global concensus on a so-called Paris rulebook.

The rulebook would establish ways to measure progress toward the goals set in the 2015 UN Paris agreement to avoid climate disaster.

James Shaw has been in Suva for the latest Climate Action Pacific Partnership conference which is part of Fiji's Presidency of the UN Climate Change Conference of Parties.

Mr Shaw spoke to Dominic Godfrey
