People in Kiribati, Nauru, and Tuvalu are already experiencing climate change impacts: incremental sea level rise, saltwater intrusion, and drought. For example, most households in all three countries have been impacted by climate change over the past 10 years (94% in Kiribati, 97% in Tuvalu and 74% in Nauru). This motivates some people to search for new homes – either to ensure a source of income or to fi nd land on which to live. Climate change is already impacting migration patterns in Kiribati and Tuvalu.
