Taputapuatea Declaration on climate change

22.09.2015: Polynesia against climate threats

We are the people of the largest ocean of the world.

For us, “the People of the Canoe”, protecting our Ocean and our environment means being resilient to adverse impacts of climate change and remaining steadfast to our Polynesian identity.

We, the People of the Canoe, have managed to withstand the test of time mid deal with the many challenges to adapt ourselves, build resilience and continue to exist. We are proud of being Polynesian and of our maritime heritage.

Climate is Changing. The situation is serious. It is now time for action.
