The University of the South Pacific’s environmental centre spearheading climate change research believes in working together for shared solutions.
Director Professor Elisabeth Holland says the Pacific Centre for the Environment and Sustainable Development (PaCE-SD) has a culture of quality and shared “ownership” of projects.
“Don’t assume you know what the answer is,” she says in her advice to climate change researchers.
“The strongest solutions are developed together.”
Dr Holland is a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
She is an author of four of the five IPCC reports and has also served as a US, German and now a Fiji representative.
