United Nations published this video item, entitled “Pacific: Turning it Around for Climate Action #Act4SDGs (A Turning Point Dialogue) | United Nations” – below is their description.

The latest IPCC report issued stark warnings of humanity’s current direction towards a post-1.5 degree celsius global temperature rise. Nowhere in the world is more vulnerable to the impacts of this trajectory than Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries. Through the lens of a Pacific Climate Warrior, this important Dialogue will convert rhetoric into reality and issue a clear call to action for decision makers and the global community as we head towards the most important upcoming opportunity – COP26 – to turn it around for the future of people and planet.
