Fijian Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama, will leave his homeland tomorrow evening to join other world leaders at the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York.  

It is expected that more than 150 world leaders will attend the event.

Bainimarama will be highlighting Fiji’s fight against climate change in New York, however he told FBC News he cannot give full details about his program for the meet as it is still yet to be finalised.  

The meeting is expected to forge solutions and adopt an inspiring new development agenda.

UN Secretary General, Bai Ki Moon, says he is encouraged by new investments in renewable energy and major commitments to reduce harmful greenhouse emissions.

He says the phenomenal changes underway are putting wind in the sails of climate action.

However, he is concerned that not enough is being done to keep the temperature rise under the 2-degree Celsius threshold.

World leaders have been urged to raise ambition and then match ambition with action.

The annual general meeting will begin at UN Headquarters on Monday.
