Communities across the world are facing a climate emergency, and it is those least responsible for causing the crisis who are being hit hardest. Across the Pacific region, communities are grappling with the daily realities of a heating planet – more severe cyclones, rising food and water insecurity, and biodiversity loss – alongside the existential threat of rising sea levels. Growing climate impacts threaten the security of their islands, their economies and livelihoods, and their culture and community. Australia is also experiencing the devastating consequences of climate change. However, we have more resources to draw from to rebuild and recover. We have also contributed significantly towards causing the climate crisis, which means we have a moral duty to support low-income countries to respond to worsening climate impacts Co-authors: Sophie Hardefeldt, Bungcaras, David Tran, Alia Armistead, Sienna Parrott, Fyfe Strachan, Marek Soanes and Julie-Anne Richards
