Kiribati the Pacific Atlantis

Kiribati the Pacific Atlantis

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 14, 2013) — Pristine white sands, palm trees and the simple life - at first sight, many would envy the Kiribati islanders. That blissful appearance is deceptive, however. The inhabitants of the chain of South Sea atolls are feeling the effects of climate change first hand. Some scientists are predicting that large parts of the nation will have disappeared completely by the end of the century. Climate refugees from the outer islands are already fleeing to the main island of Tarawa. The consequences are unemployment, domestic violence, and competition for food. Koin Etuati gives advice to schools, initiates theater productions and encourages parents to send their children to school - in the interests of giving the new arrivals a chance in their new home.

Shade Trees and Mangroves Climate Change in the South Pacific

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 6, 2012) — The Pacific island nation Vanuatu is running out of time. The indigenous inhabitants are already suffering from floods, cyclones, coastal erosion and water shortages. And climate researchers say the extreme weather will increase and sea levels will continue to rise. Most members of the indigenous population depend on natural resources from farming, forestry and fishing. Now climate change is endangering the livelihoods of the islands' inhabitants. Since 2009, Germany has been funding educational measures for politicians and journalists, and has kick-started several projects for the local rural population. On the main island, Efate, for example, new more robust vegetable varieties are being cultivated, as well as shade trees with nitrogen-fixing properties.
