Kiribati

Yearbook 1999

Kiribati. According to Countryaah official website, severe drought caused the state of emergency to be announced in early March. President Teburoro Tito appealed to the outside world for support to build new desalination plants. Two of the country's islands, Tebua Tarawa and Abanuea, were completely submerged in June. The reason was rising seawater levels as a result of the greenhouse effect. In September, Kiribati joined the UN.
