No. 3 (2014): Pacific Journalism Monographs No 3: Kiribati media, science and politics: Telling the story of climate change in a ‘disappearing nation’
By Taberannang Korauaba
Although the Pacific nation of Kiribati has been identified as one of the most vulnerable countries to the impact of climate change, little is known about the attitudes of the local media and the public toward this issue. This is in contrast to empirical study findings which have shown that the public and the media were aware of the threats posed by climate change. This monograph extracted from the author’s thesis argues that the people of Kiribati are not united over climate change.
