Missy is among a number of Oxfam Ambassadors who will take part in a global campaign called ‘in my name’ which will call on leaders to step up their commitments to reducing poverty as they review progress on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) at the UN Summit in to New York this Thursday.

In a video testimonial Missy has called on the Australian government to recognise the additional threat that climate change poses to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, especially in our region.

“It is devastating that some of Australia’s neighbours – small island countries in the Pacific – are at risk of disappearing completely because of severe changes to their environment,” Missy Higgins said.
