Abstract: Climate change is real, and its impacts are a threat to Tuvalu as a country. Long term habitability of Tuvalu is in doubt but has never been a matter of serious discussion amongst its populace. Hence, minimum attention is given to migration as an adaptation measure to climate change impacts. However, it is taking place slowly in response to socio-economic and environmental changes in Tuvaluan life. Climate change may accelerate the rate of migration in years to come. Proper planning and management of migration will be necessary, should the need arise.
