RISING sea levels threaten every coastline, says Minster for Forestry Osea Naiqamu.
Speaking at the tree planting exercise with the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC), he said more powerful storms and floods threatened every continent.
“On shrinking islands and shorelines, families are already being forced to flee their homes as climate refugees,” Mr Naiqamu said.
“The security and stability of our nation is in jeopardy and the time we have to control this phenomenon is quickly running out.”
Mr Naiqamu said the ministry recognised that faith-based organisations could yield significant influence in the lives of our people.
