The Cook Islands government has a renewed plea to international partners for financial assistance in its fight against climate change.

The pitch was made at a meeting in Rarotonga this morning between government officials and representatives from the UN and New Zealand.

Wayne King, the director of the Cook Islands Climate Change department, is at the Development and Resiliance Roundtable.

He spoke to Mackenzie Smith, who began by asking what the purpose of the roundtable is.
