Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis researchʼs foundation is the current state of affairs in Kiribati in relation to the effects of climate change and how the nation will face the future. The paper examines how different actors in Kiribati are helping the country prepare for possible climate change displacement in the future, from the viewpoint of said actors. Interview data, supplemented by observational data from time spent in the field are the primary sources of data presented. The research uncovers the importance of education, skills training, and language in the advancement of employability in a new country context. The data attests to the fact that these areas that frame social life are currently functioning well or have encouraging plans in place. Less optimistically, the data details the wanting nature of the areas of institutional coordination and public communication. The paper closes with a set of recommendations based on the gaps exposed in the findings.
