Week 8!

May 03, 2021

Hi everyone! I’ve been working on the paper and presentation this week! I realized I had to add more on why SIDS matter, so I looked at an article (link at bottom). The article showed that SIDS don’t release great amounts of emissions, but still suffer from their effects. In addition, they receive only a small amount of the funds allocated towards dealing with the emissions. In addition as the sea levels rise, SIDS starts sinking underwater, destroying the ecosystem and economy. The rich biodiversity, agricultural lands, and water resources become increasingly vulnerable. The second article listed below provided lots of information into why we should care, helping me complete that section.
