Ursula Rakova is the director of Tulele Peisa, the Carteret Islands relocation program in Bougainville. Pais Taehu is the coalition chairman of the Atolls Temarai. The two set out on an Australian speaking tour to raise awareness for the plight of their people, the world’s first climate refugees. Despite their efforts in helping their communities relocate, the international community has failed them. The seas will not stop wreaking havoc on their homeland and shorelines, so according to Rakova, the relocation process needs to be accelerated. Photo credit: Tulele Peisa
