UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Palau

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the Permanent Representative of Palau to the United Nations, in which he reminded that Palau has been the first country to sound the alarm on the security impact of climate change, leading the Assembly to adopt by consensus resolution 63/281 inviting relevant organs of the United Nations to intensify their efforts to consider and address climate change, including its possible security implications. He added that this new and different way of thinking about the problem helped to change the way we understand and discuss climate change. "No longer can anyone question the impact of climate change on energy security, food security, water security, or territorial integrity. No longer can anyone deny that rising seas and oppressive drought are displacing people across the globe," he concluded.
