United Nations appearances
Teii during his tenure as Minister of Natural Resources and Environment attended the The Nairobi Climate Change Summit held in November 2006. As Deputy Prime Minister Teii represented Tuvalu to discuss the implications of Climate Change at the United Nations High-Level Event on Climate Change at the United Nations General Assembly, between the 29th of September 2007 and 1 October 2007. Teii proposed possible changes to the Kyoto Protocol to be discussed at the Bali Climate Change Conference held between the 3rd and 15 December 2007.
In his Speech on 29 September 2007 at the High-Level Meeting, Teii declared that “Tuvalu is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change so we are seeking new funding arrangements to protect us from the impacts of climate change,” and “Rather than relying on aid money we believe that the major greenhouse polluters should pay for the impacts they are causing."
