The Permanent Mission of the Republic of Vanuatu to the United Nations
- Group of 77 and China
- Non-Alignment Movement

The Mission aims at ensuring the relevance of the United Nations and it's bodies in a rapidly changing global environment and a forum for dialogue in times of conflict. Furthermore, like all small islands nations, the country's economy and livelihoods, as well as to a certain extent their physical existence is threatened by climate change. Therefore, Vanuatu calls for global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to limit the rise of global temperature to well below 1.5° Celsius.
