(during an interview at the COP 15, December 2009)
Small Island Nations are the first and most vulnerable societies to face the challenging conditions of sea level rise, acidification, extreme weather, and other dramatic manifestations of climate change and the ocean. Some island nations already face the prospect of complete submersion and loss of place and national identity. Many are now engaged in innovative strategies to respond to these challenges, and to them we may look to see the future.
