Katy Watson reports from the Pacific islands of Tonga, where climate change translates into rising sea levels that threaten the very existence of islands only 2-3 metres above sea level. Vincent Morrish, the manager of Fafa Island Resort, describes the losing battle to save his business from the sea. Siali Lola Heeya, the executive director of the civil society forum of Tonga, explains why Tongans continue to live on the sea-shore, despite the erosion of their homeland, and Sione Fulavai, the country's senior climate change analyst, makes an impassioned plea for the rest of the world to take notice.
