Pacific people are calling for more influence on global issues that affect the region’s changing climate.

The call was a common feature among delegates speaking at the Pacific Climate Change Conference in New Zealand last week, where scientists confirmed the Pacific is facing faster and more extreme change than other parts of the planet.

Dominic Godfrey was there.
