For Islanders, Climate Change is An Issue of Life or Death.
We Can, and We must, Do Our Part to Help
- Global sea levels have risen by eight inches in the last century.
- Over 24 million people have been forced to leave their homes due to the impact of climate change. Those that call low-lying villages and islands home are on the front lines of this issue, as sea level rise causes flooding and erosion.
- People on drowning islands are increasingly relocating as formerly habitable communities sink beneath sea level.
- Greenhouse gas emissions, primarily generated by industrial nations, have begun to impact the human rights and sovereignty of individuals who occupy the world’s island nations.
