With one of the lowest carbon-emission footprints in the world, the Pacific islands nation of Kiribati, is one of the first places to confront sea level rise and other devastating real-life consequences of climate change.

Anote Tong, President of the Republic of Kiribati, is engaged in a “David against Goliath” struggle, telling his people’s story all around the world and looking for solutions that will allow the survival of his country as a Nation. “Could we live in floating islands? How to relocate people without losing our identity?”.

Listen to Anote Tong, an extraordinary man and leader, in a personal conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson.
