Pacific countries will be trying to apply as much pressure as possible in the latest round of UN climate talks, says the director of the Cook Islands climate change office.
The latest negotiations, known as COP25 in UN jargon, got underway on Monday in the Spanish capital of Madrid.
Over two weeks, leaders and representatives of every country will thrash out progress towards the Paris climate agreement of four years ago.
It comes amid of a wave of fury around the world towards inaction, led mainly by youth who took part in school strikes across the globe.
The director of the Cook Islands climate office, Wayne King, told Jamie Tahana that more than ever, the pressure is on for world leaders to do something.
