Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion
The Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion will:
- Promote communication by 2020 of new and updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) for 2030 that represent the highest possible ambition and long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies aimed at achieving net zero global emissions by 2050;
- Provide a platform for discussion, debate and knowledge-transfer on issues important to the Pacific, including options for enhancing mitigation and resilience and supporting collaboration involving stakeholders from the Pacific;
- Amplify the Pacific’s call for ambitious action by all to accelerate the transition to the low emissions, climate resilient future that is the objective of the Paris Agreement;
- Facilitate exchange of stories of national resilience planning; and showcase the challenges and opportunities of climate change affected regions in the Pacific using a range of communications mediums; and
- Be the space for Pacific delegations to come together with the global community in the spirit of Pacific partnerships.

Blue Wave rating with Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion
What we do on land impacts our ocean. As guardians of the world’s largest ocean, Pacific island people and communities can play a large role in bringing about a clean ocean. Choosing to reuse is a principal we would like to see visitors to our Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion, take on. It is estimated that over 150 million tonnes of plastics have accumulated in the world's oceans and that approximately 80% of marine litter is land-based. At the Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion we are encouraging people to reduce their use of single-use plastic, reduce their waste impact and use digital innovation. As part of our commitment to a clean ocean, the Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion will have water dispensers available for visitors to our pavilion. We will also have cups available for side event panelists, and kindly ask that if you are a panelist at several side events at the Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion – that you “Choose to Reuse” and bring your cup with you. We will be distributing reusable bags from our pavilion as well as reducing our paper distribution by sharing information on USB. For our side event organisers we have a Blue Wave rating. For those side events that use digital innovation to distribute resources, ensure the room is left clean after your side event, and abide within the side event guidelines (keeping within time, ensure fast set up and clearing, committing to gender, Pacific and youth representation) you will receive a full blue wave rating against your side event. For all visitors to our Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion we welcome you on our journey for a clean ocean. If you visit our pavilion, please do ensure you take all of your waste away with you – or even better bring no waste with you at all! We thank you for your support in bringing about a clean ocean and we look forward to seeing you at the Moana Blue Pacific Pavilion in Madrid.
