Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

I fell in to a burning ring of fire…

“Papua New Guinea sits along a volatile seismic strip called the ‘Ring of Fire’ in the Pacific.  Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis are possible….Law and order remains poor or very poor in many parts of the country, armed carjackings, assaults, robbery, shootings and serious sexual offences, including rape, are common.  We advise you to be extra vigilant whilst travelling in all cities, particularly during the hours of darkness.”

From the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office travel advice to Papua New Guinea.
