PhD study examines climate change in Kiribati, South Pacific

Dr Tioti Timon graduated with a PhD in Theology and Development. His thesis examined the ways in which climate change is affecting the people, indigenous culture, and environment of Kiribati, in the South Pacific and the role that the church and the Tangintebu Theological College is playing to equip church leadership to respond to these challenges. The study also assessed the extent to which environmental and ecological issues are integrated into the overall theological curriculum.
