29 November 2012, Doha, Qatar - Our Pacific neighbors, Kiribati is lobbying for more support from the world leaders at the United Nations Climate Conference in Doha in mitigating the impacts of climate change in its country...

The tiny atoll is only 2 to 3 meters above the sea level which exposes it to  greater risks of rising sea level.

Pacific Calling Partnership is calling for more collaboration from the developed countries in assisting Kiribati in its effort to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

The rising sea level and impacts of climate change has already resulted in migration of people from the country. One of the other pressing issues faced by the people of Kiribati is the supply of fresh water.
