The Republic of Kiribati consists of 33 atolls and is situated in the Equatorial Pacific. It is a country under threat of storm surges, salination of fresh water, unpredictable weather and tidal increases. The environmental impacts of climate change are contributing to the country’s physical demise – tragically, it is slowly and surely going down.
