Cook Islander Teina Mackenzie has called for Pacific Island Leaders to support a 10-year moratorium on seabed mining and is asking them to prioritize the health of Pacific communities and recognise values beyond economic gain.

This year at the Pacific Islands Forum they have discussed Tuvalu’s Declaration on Climate Change for the Survival of Pacific Small Island Developing States.

Tuvalu Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga praised ‘seasoned guru’ Henry Puna in yesterday’s Small Island Developing States meeting.

Overlooking Funafuti’s massive lagoon, the Tuvalu police met Cook Islands Prime Minister Henry Puna who wished to congratulate the police officers on their excellent work.

Cook Islands Prime Minister Henry Puna was welcomed to Tuvalu by a gathering of children who ushered him into the government’s open fale house.

As I walk along the beach this morning to see Funafuti’s massive lagoon, there are children swimming and fishing. “There are plenty of fish in Tuvalu,” one of them tells me.

A call from Pacific leaders to maximise money from the Green Climate Fund will drive a wedge between countries in desperate need of climate change help.

I’m excited to be a part of this year’s Pacific Islands Forum Regional Media Team going to Tuvalu.

Tannielle McHugh, daughter of detained Edward McHugh, says she feels helpless and all she can do is spread the word of her father’s unique case.
