Seychelles a Voice for Islands and Youth at Conference

Seychelles was a prominent voice for the oceans at the United Nations climate change conference (COP22) that ended in Marrakech, Morocco with Ambassador Ronny Jumeau being chosen to report on the oceans to a high-level plenary meeting.

He spoke at several other oceans events and was also in demand at activities organised by and for the youth, especially to call for their voices to be better heard in the climate change negotiations.

Mr Jumeau, Seychelles’ Ambassador for Climate Change and Small Island Developing State Issues, delivered a report on the oceans and climate change to a High-Level Event on Accelerating Climate Action. Fellow rapporteurs to the plenary were the Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) who spoke for agriculture and food security, Norway’s Minister for Climate and Environment on forests, and the President of the World Water Council who reported on water.
