A child crossing a road in Tebunginako village, an area that usually gets flooded during high tide events. The country's government says Tebunginako is a 'barometer for what Kiribati can expect in the future'. Since the 1970s the village's residents have seen the sea levels rise. Eventually the erosion was so great that a major part of the village had to be abandoned.
