They can list the shifts seen in recent years: beaches gradually disappearing, a less predictable wet season, more crop failures. ”When you eat what you grow, these things are a matter of having food or not,” Ms Riesz says from Honiara. ”They may not know about climate change, but when it is explained to them, they really understand instantly what it means, in practical terms.”
