Daku village, less than an hour’s drive from Suva in Tailevu, near Nausori, on the main Fiji island of Viti Levu, is a living example of the growing problems of climate change.

WebThe low-lying village, with a population of just over 300, is completely surrounded by mangroves.

Villagers are vulnerable to water-borne diseases because of the standing water.

A USAid project is helping the villagers adapt with the installation of a floodgate system.
