FIJI ISLANDS: GOD HELPS THOSE THAT HELP THEMSELVES
An episode from the series EARTH ON EDGE
In the heart of the Pacific, the Fiji Islands inhabitants strongly feel the effects of global warming. The slightest variation has disastrous effects. Located in the cyclones path, this archipelago composed of 322 islands is heavily struck; in February 2016, Hurricane Winston devastated many villages. Furthermore, the territory is not spared by the rising sea level. In addition, warming of the oceans disrupts marine ecosystems. Corals are dying. The displacement of populations that are without a lasting place to live has serious social consequences.
