Rt Hon Enele Sosene Sopoaga, Prime Minister of Tuvalu

Climate impacts on Tuvalu and hopes for climate change negotiations

21 November 2018

The Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Rt Hon Enele Sosene Sopoaga, will discuss the impacts of climate change on Tuvalu, noting the implications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5° C.

The Prime Minister is a firm believer in the survival of Tuvalu despite growing climate impacts and he will describe some of the measures that Tuvalu is taking to protect itself against these impacts.

There have been recent media reports from well-known sources claiming that Tuvalu is not sinking. Some of these commentaries have been picked up by elements in the Australian parliament. Prime Minister Sopoaga will respond to these claims.

The lecture will be held at ANU on Monday, 3 December from 6-7pm. More information: http://asiapacific.anu.edu.au/cap-events/2018-12-03/climate-impacts-tuva...
