The sinking Carterets Islands

Februar 26, 2010

BBC aired a 30 minute documentary on the sinking Carterets Islands, whose population is to be relocated to mainland Bougainville: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b00mcwv1

For some good and recent background information on the trouble of relocating a whole atoll check this site out: http://www.alertnet.org/db/blogs/60714/2010/01/17-142354-1.htm. Currently only a small number of families have actually left their homeland. No wonder: Fishing in their new found settlement area is far from good. The locals there are happy to take them only „if they behave properly“. Gardening is not as easy as it was on the islands and the language is not the same either.
