Two villages in Fiji are being re-located because rising sea levels are forcing them from their present homes.

Vunidogoloa village in the north is the first to suffer the impact of climate change with salt water flowing into the village.

In the south of Fiji plans are being drawn up to move Narikoso village also suffering from the effects of climate change and sea level rise.
