Episode Info:

In Episode 22 we speak with advisor to the Government of the Marshall Islands, Guillaume Charron of Independent Diplomat. The 70,000 people of the Marshall Islands are already grappling with the increasingly severe consequences of climate change which sometimes sees ocean waves washing over the entire width of some atoll. Independent Diplomat has worked with the government for the past decade to ensure that the interests of this small island nation are adequately addressed by the international community. Home to the infamous Bikini Atoll and still grappling with the fallout and radiation resulting from 67 above ground nuclear tests by the United States in the 1940s and 1950s, today the Marshall Islands are contemplating their uncertain future. In today's episode we explore Guillaume's work with the Marshall Islands sole diplomat based in Europe, the very real daily struggles with rising seas and how the future might play out for this highly vulnerable island nation. We dedicate this episode to the people of the Marshall Islands in their quest for a sustainable and bright future!
