Prime Minister Hon. Peter O’Neill with former United States Vice President Al Gore
The Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea and APEC Chairman, Peter O’Neill, preparing for climate change panel discussions with former United States Vice President Al Gore at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“Papua New Guinea is sadly home to the world’s first climate change refugees on the Carteret Islands, and the Nation knows Al Gore understands their plight and the need for global action,” the Prime Minister said.
“There are island nations in the Pacific who will cease to be nations if the world does not take action, and the World Economic Forum is one of the avenues we have to take action and advance plans to protect vulnerable people.”
