Climate Change

The slow onset climate change realities is an EXISTENTIAL ISSUE for Tuvalu. Whilst dependent on the sea for sustenance and maintenance; there is little resilience to its power and destruction.

The existence of our sovereign State is in grave jeopardy.
• Tuvalu can become the first ENDAGERED HUMAN BEINGS.
• There is no climate change refugee status under international law
• Boarder controls and immigration laws are sovereign institutions.

Experts recommend Tuvalu develop risk-averse, high tech, and sophisticated warning systems. But what can Tuvalu do when a tsunami hits and the nearest neighbor is 750 km away. We do not have a choice of inner land or higher grounds to run to!
