Description: Sea levels are rising yearly around the world, and at a quicker speed in the Pacific Ocean. Many low-lying islands are vanishing, including some of the Solomon Islands and islands in Micronesia. In 2017 the island of Fiji organizes the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP23), an international meeting of political leaders, non-state actors and activists to study environmental issues. Fiji makes plans to move more than 40 of its villages to higher ground. The small island of American Samoa has been impacted by sea-level rise, endangering ecosystems including its coral reefs. South Pacific Kiribati islets have disappeared, and it is predicted that, at the rate the sea levels are rising, Kiribati’s land will end up under water. Some scientists conjecture that many islands in the Pacific will become uninhabitable, perhaps even in decades from now. This collection includes local reactions to the sea-level rise in the Pacific, with responses to displacement, as well as scientific research for sea-level rise specific to the Pacific Ocean. It contains analyses of climate resilience, climate migration, resulting agricultural challenges and the effect this sea-level rise has on children.
