[Extract] As the 52nd Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) drew to a close in Rarotonga, Cook Islands, on 10 November, it was clear that climate change had again been one of the main points of discussion and contestation. What was especially significant about this meeting was the range of world-leading agreements that were reached on climate mobility issues — both within and bilaterally on the fringes of the forum. In particular, attention should be directed towards the Pacific Regional Framework on Climate Mobility, as well as the Falepili Union treaty between Australia and Tuvalu. These agreements will have far-reaching implications for both domestic and regional politics in the Pacific — although the nature of the framework means it is up to states to ensure these ideas are adopted and implemented.
