A look at sustainable development, how the world’s population can continue to sustain itself without destroying the planet in the process. In particular, a look at world climate changes and global warming, issues on the agenda in this last week of an international congress taking place at the
United Nations on sustainable development.

Kamarakafego discusses the effects of global warming on
island states. He argues that small island developing states can best avoid
the impacts of climate change by shifting to alternative fuels and
legislating against pollution themselves in the face of failing global
initiatives.

Guest names:

Dr. Pauulu Kamarakafego, ecologist and head of International Network of Small Island Developing States of NGOs and Indigenous People
