Rising sea levels force Tuvaluans to find new homes

Tuvalu, a tiny South Pacific nation of about 10,000 people whose existence is threatened by rising sea levels, has entered into a unique agreement with New Zealand. Under the agreement, New Zealand will accept an annual quota of 'climate refugees' from Tuvalu. These citizens are being forced to leave as sea-water is inundating their homes. The exodus of people from Tuvalu is expected to start in 2002 and the two countries expect it to continue for the next 3-4 decades.
