  • In Kiribati… What’s Possible?

    Kiribati is widely recognized as one of the world’s smallest and most isolated countries, with 32 islands dispersed across 3.5 million square kilometres across the Pacific Ocean. Life in this island nation has already seen dramatic changes due to climate change. We recently visited Bairiki, in South Tarawa, Kiribati’s capital, to find out what the country’s future leaders think is possible for their island nation’s future. This is part of a World Bank report series, Pacific Possible, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for the Pacific Islands region in coming decades.

The permanent population is just over 100,000 (2011) on 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi). The nation is composed of 32 atolls and one raised coral island, Banaba, dispersed over 3.5 million square kilometres, (1,351,000 square miles) straddling the equator, and bordering the International Date Line at its easternmost point. The name Kiribati is the local pronunciation of Gilberts, which derives from the main island chain, named the Gilbert Islands after the British explorer Thomas Gilbert, who sailed through the islands in 1788. The capital, South Tarawa, consists of a number of islets connected through a series of causeways, located in the Tarawa archipelago. Kiribati became independent from the United Kingdom in 1979. It is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the IMF and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999. Kiribati was named in French by captains Krusenstern and Louis Isidore Duperrey "îles Gilbert", Gilbert Islands, after the British Captain Thomas Gilbert, who sighted the islands in 1788. The current name, Kiribati, is an adaptation of "Gilberts", from the former European name the "Gilbert Islands". Although the indigenous name for the Gilbert Islands proper is Tungaru in Gilbertese language, the new state chose the name Kiribati, the Gilbertese rendition of Gilberts, as an equivalent of the former colony to acknowledge the inclusion of islands never considered part of the Gilberts chain. The area now called Kiribati has been inhabited by Micronesians speaking the same Oceanic language since sometime between 3000 BC and AD 1300. The area was not isolated; invaders from Tonga and Samoa, and from Fiji, later introduced Polynesian and Melanesian cultural aspects, respectively. Intermarriage tended to blur cultural differences and resulted in a significant degree of cultural homogenisation. Contact with Europeans began in the 16th century when Magellan, Saavedra and Quirós discovered and conquered the islands of Pope Clement VIII in 1520, the islands of the Queen Catalina in 1528 and the Island (La) Carolina in 1606 (Spanish rule lasted from 1528-1885), at that time the islands of Santa Catalina, were named in honor of queen Catherine of Aragon.[citation needed] Whalers, slave traders and merchant ships arrived in large numbers during the 19th century, and the resulting agitation fomented internal conflicts between tribes and introduced European epidemics. The main island chain was named the Gilbert Islands in 1820 by a Russian admiral, Adam von Krusenstern, and French captain Louis Duperrey, after a British captain named Thomas Gilbert, who crossed the archipelago in 1788 when sailing from Australia to China. From the early 19th century, Western whalers, merchant vessels and slave traders visited the islands, introducing diseases and firearms. The first British settlers arrived in 1837. In 1892 the Gilbert Islands consented to become a British protectorate together with the nearby Ellice Islands. They were administered by the Western Pacific High Commission based in Fiji. Together they became the crown colony of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands in 1916. Christmas Island (or Kiritimati) became part of the colony in 1919 and the Phoenix Islands were added in 1937. Sir Arthur Grimble was a cadet administrative officer based at Tarawa (1913--1919) and became Resident Commissioner of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands colony in 1926. Tarawa Atoll and others of the Gilbert group were occupied by Japan during World War II. Tarawa was the site of one of the bloodiest battles in US Marine Corps history. Marines landed in November 1943; the Battle of Tarawa was fought at Kiribati's former capital Betio on Tarawa Atoll. Some of the islands of Kiribati, especially in the remote Line Islands, were formerly used by the United States and United Kingdom for nuclear weapons testing including hydrogen bombs in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Kiribati is the only nation in all 4 hemispheres of the world (North, South, East and West). While the country’s land area is a mere 811 km2 (33 islands) it has an Exclusive Economic Zone of 3,441,810 km2 making it 4,243X larger! Thus, while the country is only the 187th largest in the world, its EEZ is slightly larger than all of India! 2. Kiribati has a (less famous) Christmas Island. On a map, you’ll find it marked as Kiritimati, but this is only a respelling of the word Christmas. In the Kiribati language, the combination ti is pronounced s. The island is home to only 4 villages, 3 of which are called London, Banana and Poland, and comprises over 70% of Kiribati’s total land area. 3. Most of the islands and atolls are only 1-2 metres above sea level, with the highest point just 81 m above sea level. Two small uninhabited islets, Tebua Tarawa and Abanuea, already disappeared below the sea in 1999. To counter the very real risk of the entire country disappearing beneath the waves within the next 50 years, Kiribati bought 20 km2 of land from Fiji where they can start relocating people. 4. There are no land animals that are native to Kiribati, although early settlers brought dogs and pigs with them. The waters surrounding Kiribati, however, are teaming with fish, seahorses, crabs, jellyfish, sharks, wales and dolphins, plus many more. 5. Kiribati is not the most known country in the world, but you might have heard of the Gilbert Islands. It used to be a British colony until 1979. The name is the local enunciation of Gilberts. 6. There is no rail, river, or lake transport, although canoes travel freely on the lagoons. However, all the major islands have airstrips. 7. South Tarawa is the capital and hub of the Republic of Kiribati and home to approximately half of Kiribati's total population. The island is extremely vulnerable to climate change and natural disasters. Already the effects of rising sea-levels and associated soil salinization are starting to threaten limited fresh water supplies. Households on South Tarawa do not have the option to retreat from coastal erosion, as the atoll is narrow and already crowded.

Enjoyable driving around Tarawa at different time during the day, trying to navigate between the terrible potholes in the road & the bad uneven road, avoiding & looking out for the humps in the road & trying to drive without being to distracted with the beautiful views & watching out for young children playing games along the roadway, watch out for the aggressive nature with the speeding buses & don't presume they are going to indicate when pulling out or stopping, there are no set bus stops & the buses will just stop anywhere, be patient with the road condition & keep to a low speed, night time isn't easy to film due to no street lights, on many occasions during the evening after darkness I would miss the humps in the road, apparently the locals change their tyres on a regular basis due to the terrible road conditions. Lots of local talk that the new road system & complete overall / renovation & construction should start later in 2013 & this of courses will be a very long & expensive project........... Happy driving !!! Finally I was most surprised that fuel was cheaper in Tarawa than in Sydney Australia, traveled over 1100km during my 21 days in Tarawa as a tourist. Finally enjoy the local singers & dancers witnessed while driving around.
