Dans ce minuscule etat du Pacifique, le poisson est synonyme de survie.
La peche cotiere constitue la seule activite de subsistance pour la population des Tuvalu.
Son economie repose sur la vente de licences a des navires etrangers, qui chassent les bancs de thon en haute mer.
Et le rechauffement planetaire mine toute perspective de developpement...

Ce recit photographique montre l'impact du changement climatique sur le quotidien des habitants.
A l'echelle d'une île de quelques kilometres carres, il a deja des consequences sociales, economiques et sanitaires bien tangibles.


 

In this tiny Pacific state, fish is synonymous with survival.
Inshore fishing is the only livelihood activity for the people of Tuvalu.
Its economy is based on the sale of licenses to foreign vessels, which hunt schools of tuna on the high seas.
And global warming undermines any hope of development...

This photographic work shows the impact of climate change from inhabitants perspective.
At the scale of an island of a few square kilometers, it already has very tangible social, economic and health consequences.
