Their homes look more like boats than houses. Some predict the island could be uninhabitable in just twenty years. But it not just flood homes that leaving this island with a crisis2. This whole area used to be great for growing coco trees, vital for the economy and vital for the local diet. But now you can see, salt water is everywhere, that’s killing3 off the trees and leaving the people here with a whole new range of problems.

At the island hospital I, E had just had a leg apitated. A couple of decades ago, a xx of people have diet BTs, now a fifth of the populations have the illness. He tells me because crops no longer grown, the island import food, introduced to announced healthy diet, he became addict4 to sugar and got diet BTs.
