Echoes of the past

The words of Kiuva Village elders saying Kiuva will slowly fade away still echoes in the minds of those who remain in the village.

National platform disaster risk management and climate change stakeholders visited the village of Kiuva to witness the effects of climate change on villagers and their valuable natural resources.

Kiuva Development Committee leader Waisiki Tabua said for many years they had to see their resources slowly erode which was a sad sight.

Mr Tabua said for many years the village of Kiuva had not been able to produce crops because of climate change effects on their land leaving ample land unutilised.

He said villagers had realised the importance of protecting the trees in the village and to conserve resources.
