Australia helps Samoa cope with climate change

5:25 am on 21 January 2008

Samoa is getting just over 350 thousand US dollars over the next two years from the government of Australia to support community environmental activities to address the impacts of climate change.

The financial aid will be channeled through the United Nations Development Programme or UNDP global environment facility small grants programme.

The agreement was signed yesterday by the UNDP head in Samoa and the Australian High Commissioner.
