FIJI ISLANDS, GOD HELPS THOSE THAT HELP THEMSELVES
A round-the-world tour of countries facing climate change
An episode from the series EARTH ON EDGE
In the heart of the Pacific, the Fiji islands can feel global warming. The slightest variation has disastrous effects.
Located in the cyclones path, this archipelago composed of 322 islands is highly targeted, like in February 2016 when hurricane Winston leveled many villages. Furthermore, the territory is not spared by the rising sea level, ocean warming that disrupts the marine ecosystems and corals that are dying.
The recurring resettlements of the inhabitants have serious social consequences.
