How climate change is reshaping societies

On the island of Kiribati, climate change is taking a heavy toll on the region and its inhabitants. Rising sea levels are forcing people to relocate to the main island. But a lack of jobs and opportunities to earn income has led to a rise in violence, especially within families. Local activists are trying to counter that with projects that engage a wide section of society. High on the agenda are initiatives that raise awareness about the need to protect the environment and fight climate change.
