Imagine living on an low lying atoll and worrying whether the next high tide will destroy your home? Or being unable to prepare for your future, engage in business or invest in your country because there may not be a tomorrow.? Well these are the realities people of Kiribati face everyday. Talk Business catches up with the man who tries to put these fears to rest for his people, fighting an uphill battle against climate change and those responsible for his sinking islands.
During my travels throughout Tarawa I would often take a break around Bairiki Square & start a conversation with the locals, other tourists & some business people, free entertainment at the same time, not able to understand the Kiribati language, however it gave the square a atmosphere & good for the local businesses.
Some people in the South Pacific could become the world's first climate change refugees due to rising sea levels.

The president of the tiny Pacific island nation of Kiribati announced a ban on commercial fishing in the waters surrounding his country in order to protect the marine life that lives along the coral reefs that ring his country’s islands, most importantly tuna.
Only a few min's walk from the Bairiki Square the business area in Tarawa, this is the residency of the President of Kiribati, while viewing the building from the road I get talking to the only local Taxi Driver & he also offers to take me to the Presidents weekend home, I'm not really sure if this is totally true, however I went along for the ride & relaxed in the area for a while taking to the taxi driver. Later I then returned back to Bairiki area,. I managed to re-visit the Presidents main home for a second occasion & filmed from outside, I got talking to a couple of the security guards & some guards were relaxed about filming the property while others were not so relaxed !!!! Using my camera appeared to be no problem.

The fishing communities of Kiribati, a Pacific nation comprising 33 small islands, speak about their loss of livelihood and erosion of their culture at the hands of destructive and oversized fishing vessels operating under European flags, ownership or management. Overfishing is a global problem with alarming and indisputable consequences: 90 percent of global fish stocks are currently overexploited. Support low impact fishers and help ensure fair fishing.

For the people of Kiribati, climate change isn't something to be debated, denied or legislated against — it's an everyday reality. The low-lying Pacific island nation may soon be underwater, thanks to rising sea levels. In a personal conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Kiribati President Anote Tong discusses his country's present climate catastrophe and its imperiled future. "In order to deal with climate change, there's got to be sacrifice. There's got to be commitment," he says. "We've got to tell people that the world has changed."

The Pacific island nation of Kiribati is leading efforts to establish a regional employment hub for technical and vocational employment opportunities in the region. The initiative, which is in line with Kiribati's "migration with dignity" policy for climate change, is aimed to address employment issues in Kiribati and other Pacific island countries. The country led initiative was introduced during the Smaller Islands States Leaders Meeting prior to the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders meeting in the Marshall Islands in early September. In speaking to the media, President Tong says Kiribati has a huge population with a large proportion of young people, so unemployment is a big problem. The President expressed that Kiribati has to be realistic as the country does not have the economic ba...
