Witness | Meltdown: Fiji

 

Meltdown Fiji reports from Kabara, a tiny island in the remote Lau Archipelago, one of the more than 300 islands in Fiji. The Kabara islanders have always been self-sufficient, relying on fishing and crop cultivation to meet their needs. But over the last 10 years the islanders have witnessed profound changes in the weather and the island’s ecosystems. In the past, they collected enough water in the rainy season to last them through dry periods, but now there is no rainy season, and their crops are wilting in the increasing temperatures. Worse still, damage to the coral reefs is threatening the existence of the marine life. Kabaran Penina Moce tells Meltdown about her fears for the future.
