64 villages will be relocated to high grounds in the next few years due to climate change.
This has been revealed by Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum at the Green Climate Fund 2nd High-Level Regional Workshop.
Sayed-Khaiyum says that 3 to 4 villages have already been relocated.
He says Pacific Island countries have to focus on adaptation rather than mitigation.
Sayed-Khaiyum adds that they must take a holistic approach when they talk about funding and its accessibility so that they understand the capacity of the Pacific's vulnerability in their different economies.
He mentions that there has definitely been an increase in the awareness of accessing funds and how to access the funds to help Pacific Islands adapt to climate change.
