Speech in the water Tuvalu will be one of the first nations to be impacted by rising sea levels. Much of Tuvalu’s lowlands are only a few feet above sea level, so any significant rase in water level, or erosion would shrink this nation. However is the past 4 decades, Tuvalu’s coast has grown in size, and will continue to be inhabited for years to come.

The government of Tuvalu does not consider rising sea levels significant enough to warrant the relocation of Tuvaluans. Despite this, other nations have offered to take in Tuvalu’s population should the need arise.

The future of Tuvalu has many challenges ahead, but Tuvalu will continue to persevere
