Both Taiwan and Tuvalu consist of Pacific Islands. Although Taiwan's political idenpendance is a subject of debate, it's making recent headlines as it vows to support Tuvalu from rising sea levels. Policital entities and independance set aside we must note the positive things of such a message.
It recognizes that rising sea levels is a serious problem that would effect all Pacific Islands which should already be planning for the possiblity of rising sea levels and flooding due to climate change. The other key thing to note is that the people of Taiwan want to assist the people of Tuvalu to face this challenge. The rising sea level problem will be better solved when Pacific Islanders work together and with others in the global cummunity.
