Australia has entered a landmark agreement to provide refuge to citizens of Tuvalu due to the severe impacts of climate change, particularly rising sea levels.

Tuvalu, a vulnerable Pacific island nation, is among those most at risk from climate-related threats. Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese hailed the agreement, known as the Falepili Union, as groundbreaking.

It allows up to 280 Tuvaluan citizens per year to receive visas for living, working, and studying in Australia. This marks the first time Australia has offered residency due to climate change threats.

The pact also includes Australian support for Tuvalu in climate action and security, with commitments to defend against military aggression and restrictions on Tuvalu entering defense pacts without Australian approval.

The agreement emphasizes regional stability, sustainability, and prosperity. Australia has further pledged financial aid, including funding to help Tuvalu adapt to climate change, with a specific initiative to expand the landmass of Tuvalu’s main island.

The move reflects a recognition of Australia’s responsibility to the Pacific family and demonstrates solidarity in addressing climate challenges.
