Aborigines worst affected by the climatic changes

The Australia's Aborigines are facing a cultural genocide as the rising sea levels and soaring temperatures make the homelands of the Aborigines uninhabitable.

Nearly 80% of the adults in these communities rely on the natural environment for their livelihoods.
