PM announces $15m to support Samoa with climate change priorities

New Zealand will provide $15m to support Samoa with its climate change priorities.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement on Tuesday morning, at a joint press conference with Samoan Prime Minister Fiame Naomi Mata'afa.

New Zealand will work with the Samoan government to determine where the climate funding will go: governance arrangements, and opportunities for future investments.

"This funding will help build Samoa's resilience to the impacts of climate change and its transition to a low emissions economy," Ardern said.

The government is also pledging $12m to rebuild Apia's Savalalo Market, a historic market which was destroyed by a fire in 2016.
