Threats to village

Samoan village may become uninhabitable: 'It's heartbreaking'

The seaside village near Apia in Samoa was visited by a New Zealand delegation of business leaders and MPs yesterday, including Climate Change Minister James Shaw.

The trip is part of the Prime Minister's whirlwind tour as Jacinda Ardern kicks off what the government has called itsĀ "Pacific reset".

Ofeira Faasau has lived in Moata'a since she was a child. The walkway that connected the village now gets swamped during high tide, effectively cutting it off, she said.
