The Future is Here: climate change in the Pacific

The Future is Here: climate change in the Pacific highlights that Pacific Islanders are already feeling the effects of climate change and need greater support to address the dramatic effects in the region. The report documents how people in the Pacific are facing increasing food and water shortages, dealing with rising cases of malaria, coping with more frequent flooding and storm surges, losing land and being forced from their homes. The report argues that unless wealthy, developed countries like New Zealand and Australia take urgent action to curb emissions, some island nations face the very real threat of becoming uninhabitable.
