Marshall Islands declares climate crisis

The Marshall Islands has declared a national climate crisis.

The country’s Nitijela, or Parliament, last month passed a resolution making the fight against climate change its top priority.

Resolution 83, made public today, says the Marshall Islands continues to struggle to finance a response to the climate crisis.

Passed by the Nitijela on 26 September, the resolution lays responsibility for the crisis with the international community.

It note countries responsible have had an inadequate response to the climate crisis.

The resolution calls on the international community to consider additional support to low-lying atoll nations in their fight against climate change.
