The leaders of the Pacific's nine smallest countries are calling for an immediate end to coal, divestment from fossil fuels and a rapid step‑up in action on climate change.

The small island states of the Pacific Islands Forum met this morning in Tuvalu two days ahead of the full forum meeting.

It's about as strong as statements get: small islands declaring a climate crisis, wanting dramatic action.

It also called for support and bolstering of the UN's Green Climate Fund, which several countries have stopped contributing to.

One of those countries is Australia a forum member whose prime minister arrives in Tuvalu tomorrow.
