Urgent climate action: a choice we can — and must — make

“Save Tuvalu; save the world.”  This is the rallying cry I heard on my recent visit to Tuvalu, a stop on my Pacific tour to the frontlines of the global climate emergency.

The Secretary-General will travel to Suriname.

He is first scheduled to fly over a rainforest region, which will include viewing deeper areas of the Suriname carbon sink. Weather permitting, he will visit Tepu village, where he will meet the Trio indigenous community.

The Secretary-General will then visit Anton de Kom University and will see first-hand how Suriname is working to monitor and preserve essential mangrove ecosystems, which are threatened by sea-level rise and coastal erosion.

Secretary-General's opening remarks at joint press conference with President Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa of Portugal and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya at United Nations Ocean Conference

Dear representatives of the media, welcome.

I am pleased to be in Lisbon to help launch the United Nations Ocean Conference, generously hosted by Kenya and Portugal.

And I feel that very personally today. 

Standing here, my mind goes back to the 1998 World Expo with a focus on the ocean that Portugal hosted while I was Prime Minister.  And the present Prime Minister was the Minister in charge of organizing the Expo.

Almost a quarter century later, this conference comes at a critical moment.
