This region is at the forefront of climate change issues. Beyond that, it has been the hub of the United Nations Development Programme - UNDP support for the Pole to Paris journey. For over 1 year and 15,000 km, UNDP in Samoa, Cook Islands, Tokelau & Niue and UNDP global has backed the team on its journey to #COP21. With #COP21 on the horizon, the journey is coming to an end. So, as one more show of support for Samoa and the region, Pole to Paris and UNDP want to extend and amplify the voice of the Pacific. So we are heard. So world leaders know we are not drowning. We are fighting! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=564781963671065&id=404392423043354 Thursday AT 07:14 PM
