The government of predecessor Benigno Aquino had pledged to the United Nations to cut the Asian country’s emissions by 70 per cent by 2030 from 2000 levels if it got support from developed nations to convert to clean technologies.

“I have misgivings about this Paris [climate deal] … The problem is these industrialised countries have reached their destination.”

The South Australian model was considered but rejected.
