The COP23 meeting is working on implementing the cuts in greenhouse gas emissions decided under the Paris climate deal, Radio New Zealand reported.
 
The threat from sea level rise means that Tuvalu will become uninhabitable by 2050, and Kiribati, is expected to be fully submerged by 2100.
 
Sopoaga said the situation was dire and climate-change deniers and sceptics needed to be ignored.
 
"Maybe they can step aside, and allow the world and progressive countries - like the UK, like Canada, like the European Union, France and New Zealand - move forward on the global agenda on climate change. We need actions out of COP23," he said.
