Caption: Kiribati, Tarawa Island, 2012
Residents protect their homes with sand bags for the rising sea levels at Betio.
Due to rising sea levels and a higher frequency of storms the reef is not the natural protection that it used to be.
Betio island is the most populated part of Tarawa, due to sea water intrusion and the high population there is a serious lack of drinking water and agricultural land.
