Kiribati Flag

Kiribati is an island nation in the Pacific. The state territory extends over a large number of islands in Micronesia and Polynesia, which are scattered over a wide area north and south of the equator. The easternmost of the Line Islands (Caroline Island) has been called “Millennium Island” since January 1, 2000, because the first sunrise of the 3rd millennium could be observed on this island.

Most of the country is less than two meters above sea level. This makes Kiribati one of the first countries that will largely sink into the sea as a result of climate change.
