The impacts of climate change are being felt around the globe, and small island developing states are on the frontline. Due to their remote geographies they are particularly exposed to rising sea levels and natural disasters, and often lack the financial resources and international support needed to tackle some of the damaging effects of climate change. This series takes a closer look at how innovative solutions and satellite technology can help build resilience and prepare some of the world’s most vulnerable communities for the challenges ahead.
