Paradise Lost: Island Life Threatened by Climate Change

The Asian tsunami has graphically highlighted the vulnerability of coastal communities to sudden, natural disaster. But in some small island states, residents have long faced the prospect of losing their homes and livelihoods through climate change. Problems include rising sea levels, hurricanes and fresh water shortages.

In Paradise Lost IWR presents three features on how climate change is directly affecting the lives of people living on small islands:

  • Worsening droughts coupled with humidity in Trinidad means a successful chicken farmer has seen a drastic drop in production as his birds expire in the heat.

  • Parts of Jamaica were wrecked by Hurricane Ivan in September 2004 and whilst priority was given to getting tourist areas up and running, many months later hundreds of locals are still squatting in temporary accommodation.

  • People living on Tuvalu, a tiny island near Australia, fear they will see their homeland disappear into the ocean.

    Tuvalu: Pacific islanders fear the rains

    Tuvalu - a tiny remote country - was spared the devastation of the Indian Ocean tsunami, but is still gravely threatened by rising sea level and other climatic dangers like fresh water shortages.

    If sea levels keep rising the islanders face a future as environmental refugees. In the meantime they are grappling with unwelcome changes to their diet and lifestyle.

    Jamaica: After the hurricane

    The 2004 hurricane season across the Caribbean was the most severe in living memory. These small island states were hit by at least four major hurricanes in the second half of last year. Grenada, Cuba and Haiti among others were battered by the winds and left flooded. Lives were lost and livelihoods ruined.

    Patricia Clarke on Jamaica reports on the aftermath.

    Hurricanes have been increasing in strength and number in the Caribbean. On top of that, changing weather patterns have been noted - and they've brought their own casualties.
