It's hoped the outcomes of a climate resilience conference in Fiji will give the region a good platform before next month's global climate change conference in Paris.
Pacific health ministers are developing an outcome document in Nadi today, on climate change implications on the health and wellbeing of women, adolescents and children.
The document will support Pacific Islands Country's positioning at key international forums - the first being the COP21 meeting in Paris.
The United Nations Population Fund Deputy Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific, Lubna Baqi, says the Pacific has a very united voice when it comes to the climate.
"They have come together on many issues but the importance of this particular conference is that it brings all of those technical areas together and integrates them in a more wholistic manner so it really looks at the importance of having resilient health systems to counteract the impact of climate change."
Lubna Baqi says this week's conference is the first to take place since world leaders formally adopted the sustainable development goals at the UN General Assembly last month.
