9 July 2013, Nadi, Fiji - The Director General of Secretariat of the Pacific Community, Dr Jimmie Rodgers has signalled the importance of a holistic support from all participants for the development of the joint integrated regional framework on climate change and disaster risk reduction.
“What I would expect out of this meeting is an universal kind of understanding and support that we agree on a road map to establish a integrated strategy by 2015,” Dr Rodgers said.
He said SPC, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Porgramme and United Nations office on Disaster Risks Reduction(UNISDR) will continue to support countries in the process of achieving the integrated framework strategy.
