Confirmation of Fiji presidency of COP23 expected this week

At the current COP22 talks in the Moroccan capital, Marrakesh, Fiji put in a bid to co-chair the next climate change conference, COP23, and gained the support of the grouping of Small Island States, AOSIS, and Pacific island delegations.

Sylvie Goyet, a Pacific Community delegate at COP22, expected Fiji's nomination by the whole Asia Pacific group to be confirmed over the next few days.
