“New Zealand can use its UN Security Council presidency to highlight the threat that climate change poses to international peace and security,” said Green Party global affairs spokesperson Dr Kennedy Graham.

Asia-Pacific Greens Unite

Climate Keynote by James Shaw, New Zealand Green Party

Cyclone Pam is a call for action on dangerous climate change

If we truly want to see the people of Vanuatu, the Philippines, and the rest of the Pacific live their lives without the constant fear and threat of climate change-related disasters, then we need to act.

Aid for Vanuatu welcome and essential but not enough

Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne has welcomed Australia's commitment of $5 million in aid and medical personnel for the island nation of Vanuatu in the wake of Cyclone Pam, but says regional disasters will get worse if more is not done to reduce the pollution that is causing global warming.

"Our thoughts are with the people of Vanuatu and all those impacted by the ferocity of Cyclone Pam. I know that all Australians' hearts go out to all the victims, their families and those who have lost their homes and livelihoods," Senator Milne said.
