Majuro, Marshall Islands

A cemetery in Jernok village which is slowly being destroyed by the rising seas. 'Cemeteries along the coastline are being affected' says Kaminga Kaminga, a climate change negotiator for the Marshall Islands. 'Gravesites are falling into the sea. Even in death we're affected.' In June 2014 rising sea levels washed out the remains of at least 26 Japanese WWII soldiers on Santo Island. The Marshall Islands comprises of two chains of coral atolls, together with more than 1,000 islets. It is on average just two metres above sea level. The country faces an existential threat from rising sea levels with some predictions claiming that the islands will be swamped by the end of the 21st century.
