The leaders of Pacific countries have been putting together a case to take to Australia when the Pacific Islands Forum meets in Tuvalu on Thursday.

The countries want a stronger commitment to fighting climate change from the region's largest economy, which is also the region's largest emitter, and one of the world's largest coal exporters.
