Easier funding avenues needed for Pacific nations - Key

6:14 am on 10 September 2011

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key says it needs to be easier for Pacific countries to get climate change funding.

A number of leaders at the Pacific Islands Forum in Auckland this week called for funds to be made more available to countries vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

Mr Key says much of the post-Forum dialogue on Friday was about donor co-ordination.

He said it is an issue for the leaders to take away and continue to work on.
