Support for Pacific stance at Bonn climate round

From , 3:04 pm on 21 June 2019

A Pacific climate change specialist says there is a groundswell of support for the region's stance at the latest global talks underway in Germany.

SPREP's Espen Ronneberg says the Pacific nations and other vulnerable countries want more funding for climate change action.

He says the talks in Bonn have a sense of urgency, as countries try to limit global warming to the 1.5 degrees set out in last year's UN climate panel report rather than the 2 degrees of the earlier Paris Agreement.

He spoke with Dominic Godfrey who asked about the appetite for achieving the more ambitious goal.
