Biden Promises $200 Million to Climate-Vulnerable Pacific Islands During Joint Summit

During the U.S.-Pacific Islands Forum Summit at the White House, President Joe Biden reaffirmed the United States' dedication to partnering with the Pacific Islands. He announced a significant commitment of nearly $200 million in funding for various programs and activities in the Pacific Islands, guided by the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent. This commitment emphasizes shared objectives of resilience, peace, security, social inclusion, and prosperity in the Pacific region. The U.S. has also recognized the independence of the Cook Islands and Niue, with plans to establish relationships with both nations, reinforcing shared values such as democracy, climate change mitigation, and a free and open region.
The climate crisis remains a top concern for Pacific Island nations, given their vulnerability to extreme weather events and rising sea levels. The U.S. pledges to collaborate closely with the Pacific Islands to limit global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, accelerate the transition to clean energy, and aid in climate adaptation. Furthermore, initiatives will focus on strengthening disaster preparedness, supporting women's leadership in clean energy, expanding access to financial resources for businesses, promoting sustainable fisheries, enhancing infrastructure development, and fostering economic competition and diversification. The U.S. aims to bolster relationships with Pacific Island nations and ensure a free, open, prosperous, and secure Indo-Pacific region.
