 The small island nation of Kiribati has already started to feel the effects of rising sea levels so its government has decided to buy about 6000 acres of land in Fiji.

In an interview with the Fiji Times Kiribati President Anote Tong said the last thing he wanted was for people to panic and that they are buying land in Vanua Levu, physician Fiji to address their food security and not for the relocation of their people.

 Tong who has been advocating about the adverse effects of climate change in his small island state said that a whole community in Kiribati had relocated and the frequency of those relocating was more often now than before.

 Kiribati has a population of over 100,000 people and has been an active participant in international diplomatic efforts relating to climate change.
