Climate conference tackles health of oceans

Summit organised to discuss issues facing some of the world’s most vulnerable countries.

    The ocean, and the threat of over-fishing, has featured on the second day of a UN conference in the small Pacific island nation of Samoa. 

    There, climate change was threatening Samoa very existence, until the village leaders took drastic action.

    They hope their experience can serve as an example to save other fragile economies.
