Marshall Islands

the republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) is a Pacific island nation that inhabits a fragile atoll ecosystem with no significant elevation above sea level. Susceptibility to tropical storms and economic dependence on coral reef ecology combine to produce a high risk that climate change will threaten the nation's survival. RMI can do little to ameliorate or reduce potential impacts. It is likely that land mass will be reduced, storm damage will increase, and the coral reef ecosystem will disintegrate with increasing ocean temperature, rising sea level, and atmospheric disturbances. RMI has been among the leading nations advocating a planetary response to these issues, most notably through testimony before the United Nations Climate Change Conference and UN Security Council, and active involvement in the Alliance of Small Island States. RMI consists of 29 coral atolls organized into the Ratak and Ralik chains in the western Pacific Ocean
