Voices from the Waves

For some background on the perspective of the Pacific Small Island Developing States as they work toward acceptance of their recently proposed draft resolution, check out the following film, produced by TVE Asia Pacific:

Global warming will raise sea levels, wreaking havoc on small Pacific island nations. Some low-lying islands will be submerged completely while others will suffer massive damage. These impacts will change forever the Pacific islanders’ natural environment, culture, livelihoods and lifestyles — all of which are intricately linked. This film views these survival issues through the eyes of two teenagers — Dilagi, a Fijian girl, and Bernard, a boy from Kiribati. They say: relocation is not a viable option, and our way of life is not negotiable.
