The University of Fiji recognises the impacts of climate change on Small Island Developing States.


The institution creates monthly awareness activities to support climate change issues in the lead up to Fiji's Presidency to COP23 in November, 2017 in Bonn, Germany.

UniFiji had hosted the fifth COP23 awareness session last Friday.

Initiated by the Vice-Chancellor and facilitated by the School of Science and Technology, the fifth session was conducted by a local Non-Government organisation, Diverse Voices and Action (DIVA) for Equality.

The organisation is also co-convener of the Pacific Partnerships on Gender, Climate Change and Sustainable Development; the Pacific Urgent Action Hub for Climate Justice, and Women and Gender Constituency Liaison to the COP 23 Presidency.

Political Advisor, Ms Noelene Nabulivou and Management Collective, Ms Maria Nailevu spoke on  The Gender Dimension of Climate Justice.

The presentation provided an understanding of feminist politics, overview of linkages between gender and climate justice and an insight into Just transition to a Plastic Free Pacific.

The Women Defend Commons campaigns links to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The next COP23 awareness seminar session topic is, "Effect of Climate Change on Fisheries" and is scheduled to be held this Friday, at the University of Fiji's Saweni Campus from 1-2pm.
