"When the flooding happens, nothing can stop it" he says. He has lived in Ajeltake, a suburb on the more spacious and forested end of Majuro Atoll for 24 years. He lives near the ocean and has not built a sea wall yet.Locations:Majuro Atoll-Marshall Islands-Micronesia-Pacific IslandsDate:14 Nov, 2018Credit:© Genevieve French / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5445px X 3631pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Climate change impacts-Day-Islands-KWCI (GPI)-One person-Outdoors-Palm trees-PortraitsShoot:Climate Change Impacts in the Marshall IslandsKing tides and coastal flooding have been worsening in the Marshall Islands. Located on low-lying coral atolls, these islands are extremely susceptible to sea level rise and king tides. Adaptation efforts across Majuro Atoll are already being widely used - including building sea walls, elevating houses and climate-proofing infrastructures. King tides have affected the Rita end of Majuro Atoll particularly with many houses in the area damaged and abandoned due to flooding and coastal erosion.
