Prime Minister Scott Morrison is to announce a climate change package when he meets with leaders at the upcoming Pacific Island Forum. The package will provide $500 million over five years from 2020, with the money to be used on climate and disaster resilience and on renewable energy investment. The package announcement comes amid growing criticism of Australia’s domestic emission policies by Pacific leaders, with Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama saying on 12 August that Australia needs to quickly end its reliance on coal.
