‘…..cclimate change with its spiralling costs are 
all factors which have led the Government of 
Kiribati (GoK) to adopt a merit-based 
relocation strategy as one option for its 
people. This strategy involves the up skilling 
of I-Kiribati to make them competitive in 
international labour markets so that …
they choose to migrate, they will migrate on 
merit and with dignity. They will be received 
by their adopted countries not as burdens, but 
as worthwhile members of the community.’
