Pacific Island Countries Face Urgent Climate Challenges

Experts and scholars from around the world gathered at the 2024 International Forum on Pacific Island Countries Response to Climate Change in Qingdao, Shandong province, to discuss the urgent need for climate action and solutions to help Pacific island countries cope with climate change and achieve sustainable development.

The forum highlighted the vulnerability of Pacific island countries to climate change, particularly sea level rise. Li Jianping, director of the Center for Ocean Carbon Neutrality at the Ocean University of China (OUC), warned that more islands could disappear due to rising sea levels.

The forum participants, including experts, scholars, and students from 10 countries, focused on topics such as climate change impacts, sea level rise, ocean governance, and sustainable development. Bibhya Sharma, a professor at the University of the South Pacific, mentioned the university's Center for Pacific Sustainability Futures, which aims to accelerate climate change mitigation and enhance resilience and adaptation to its impacts.

Lin Bin, deputy secretary-general of the Communist Party of China Qingdao committee, highlighted Qingdao's growing sub-national relations with Pacific island countries, noting significant achievements in high-level visits, sister-city interactions, economic and trade cooperation, and cultural exchanges.

Liu Yong, vice president of the OUC, emphasized the university's commitment to high-level open education and collaboration with global partners to jointly address climate change. The OUC, a comprehensive research institution with a focus on marine and fisheries sciences, will celebrate its centenary in October 2024.
