Climate Stance

Climate stance 'welcomed' at Pacific Forum

Pacific Minister Pat Conroy said the federal government's new climate target had been well supported by nations in the region and a sign of improved ties amid growing tensions in the Indo-Pacific.

“Our renewed and increased action on climate change has been welcomed by Pacific island nations,” Conroy told ABC Radio on Monday.

“There's a real enthusiasm on Australia's climate policy, a palpable sense of relief that we have finally listened to the region's priorities ... it's giving us a huge opportunity to rebuild our relationship with the Pacific.
