The Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) began in recognition of the negative impact climate change was having on the peoples of Kiribati, Tuvalu and islands of the Torres Strait.
We are committed to listening to what leaders are saying about imminent threats to their way of life and collaborating with them in passing this important message on.
PCP strives to facilitate links between concerned people in Australia and Pacific Islands that are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

About Pacific Calling Partnership
The Pacific Calling Partnership began in May 2006 in response to a series of calls that had come from the peoples in low-lying Pacific Islands. The PCP brings together a number of significant Non Government Organisations (NGOs), school groups, community organisations, and individuals who all recognise Australia’s ecological debt to Kiribati, Tuvalu, parts of the Torres Strait and other low-lying Pacific Island neighbours. These are joined in partnership with individuals and organisations living in the Pacific and migrant groups in Australia. New members are always welcome.
Together we strive, in all our endeavours, to listen to and be accountable to voices from the Pacific and Torres Strait and to raise awareness about the impacts on them of high greenhouse gas emissions from industrialised countries. The PCP meets regularly in order to co-ordinate, energise, and review the progress that the campaign is making. Several partners are members of the Climate Action Network of Australia (CANA) and are active participants in CANA processes.
The PCP aims to build a consensus that drives support for Australia, in partnership with our neighbours, to undertake an audit of the civil, cultural, economic and environmental resilience of all countries within the Pacific region. In this way we can work towards building a positive, communitarian and sustainable response based on Human Rights to the increased water, food, fuel and land stresses that are predicted under present circumstances and future climate change scenarios.
