Abstract

It is difficult to pinpoint the specific human consequences of climate change on respective populations. Qualitative information is examined based on interviewees' testimonies and personal experience, and consequences of uneven development in Kiribati and Tuvalu, two atoll nations. Strong evidence is found that recent influxes in population movements to urban central islands from rural outer islands can be attributed to a combination of the adverse impacts of climate change and socioeconomic factors inherit in small island developing states. There is a pressure on local infrastructure and services and a general livelihood decline
