For years, politicians and scientists have been talking about a future of migration caused by climate change. In Fiji this migration has already begun. The question is now how to exactly do it.

Daniel spoke with Merewalesi Yee who is pursuing a PHD at the university of Queensland in Brisban Australia. Her project seeks to understand human migration in Fiji caused by climate change and the role of mobility in climate change adaptation. 

Leba Gaunavinaka is a climate change adaption specialist at the Fijian ministry of climate change. She helped creating the plan that tries to tackle one of the most urgent problems of the climate crisis: how to relocate communities whose land is soon inhabitable.
