Key aspects of relations

Palau benefits from Switzerland’s involvement in regional projects, particularly in the area of climate change. For example, the Pacific Climate Change Roundtable, which is carried out with the partner organisation the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environmental Programme (SPREP).
