AUCKLAND (Radio 95bFM The Wire/Southern Cross/Pacific Media Watch): Concerns New Zealand may not meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement are the focus of the Pacific Media Centre's weekly Southern Cross radio programme.

Pacific Media Watch freedom project editor Kendall Hutt explores the implications to the Pacific following a parliamentary report on New Zealand's poor climate change policies.

Hutt also speaks to The Wire host Joel Thomas about the election saga in PNG and Indonesian president Joko Widodo's plans to implement a 'war on drugs' policy similar to Rodrigo Duterte's deadly crackdown in the Philippines.
