Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama 2020 Champion of the Earth – Policy Leadership

Fiji’s Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, has been consistently advocating and raising the alarm about the dangerous consequences of climate change and the vulnerability of Pacific countries.

Under the Prime Minister’s leadership, Fiji has taken bold and decisive actions to draw global attention to the consequences of climate change and rising sea levels. The country was the first to ratify the 2015 Paris Agreement and is pursuing a national strategy to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 across its entire economy.

“Prime Minister Bainimarama has demonstrated the leadership and ambition demanded by the escalating global climate emergency,” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). “Evacuated Pacific Island communities show us the consequence of moving too slowly. Whether it is protecting coral reefs or strengthening energy policy, the transformative policies Fiji is taking under Bainimarama’s leadership illuminates the path we must take together in the battle to heal our planet.”

The annual Champions of the Earth award is the UN’s highest environmental honour. It recognizes outstanding leaders from government, civil society and the private sector. Frank Bainimarama is one of six laureates announced in December 2020, on the cusp of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

Together, they Act #FORNATURE.
