The Fiji Action Plan Adopted by All Delegates

The 4th ABU Media Summit on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction  and the 9th ABU Pacific Media Partnership Conference closed this afternoon in Nadi, Fiji after three-day of intense meetings and discussions.

Delegates agree that the media, all over the world has a vital role to play in disseminating information about climate change and its effects. In the Pacific regional context, radio and television broadcasting organisations are critical to the task of providing communities with timely and accurate disaster- related information that can save lives and property, especially in rural and maritime areas.

The host of this joint Media Summit and Pacific Media Partnership Conference and the members of the ABU will place the Fiji Action Plan before relevant United Nations bodies, conferences and donor agencies, thus ensuring that the voices of the people of the island nations of the Pacific are heard by those international institutions.
