'Culture and museum mission on Abemama Island' March 2018

On 4 March, 2018, a team of three from the Culture and Museum Division visited Abemama Island, one of the Southern islands of the Gilbert Group in Kiribati, to undertake activities supporting food security in the face of climate change. The trip involved a workshop around theory and practical training in planting long-term native trees considered valuable in sustaining food security, promoting economic activities and preserving traditional cultural values and practices. The training was attended by household representatives including elders, middle-aged men and women, and youth, totaling 182 participants.
