Photographer’s Caption: Coastline at Togoru, Navua. As world leaders debate their commitments and obligations to producing a solution on the global threat of climate change, many of our small islands in the Pacific are already eroding away. Sea waters have infiltrated our farms making it impossible to produce crops, threating our food security. The playground where our children used to play is now submerged at high tide. We will soon paddle our canoes into the open sea and snorkel a few meters deep if we are to visit our grandparents’ graves. Cyclones that usually come once or twice a decade have become regular visitors with increased ferocity. The world must unite and work together if we are to survive.
