'Nobody can stop water': Fijians brace for relocation as sea level rises

Description

The sea has already swallowed the village graveyard in Togoru, Fiji, and long-time resident Lavenia McGoon is dreading the day it claims her house. She has piled old rubber car tyres under the coconut trees that line the beachfront, hoping this makeshift seawall will at least buy her some time. The 70-year-old believes climate change, and the creeping ocean, will inevitably force her family to leave.
