Message from Copenhagen: Fei Tevi, Secretary General, Pacific Council of Churches

"I think like everybody else we are really hoping for a legally binding and ambitious agreement.  We hope that our leaders will step up to the mark and b leaders as they are named and to go for emissions targets that are well worth the while and that will enable us to forge good steps and prepare us better for the future.

If we don't do it now, if we don't take those steps now we will it will be more expensive in the future.

And so for us thats one of the main issues that of course al the networks of ngo's and civil society that we are concerned about.

As you see around us a lot of people are talking about adaptation and mitigation and talking about saving the trees and savings the trees but there's not that many of us thats talking about looking for other places to live.

For the Pacific conference of churches its an ongoing priority and for our network its also an ongoing priority.  And also for our partners they are helping us in thi process and to begin dialogue and preparations towards the resettlement of populations.

And of course in our Pacific we've already experienced many resettlements taking place."
