For Ursula Rakova from the Carteret Islands, seeing her ancestral homeland disappear is a hard reality. The Carteret Islands are a small group of islands off Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. Seawater is swamping the islands, making them uninhabitable. The community has built sea walls and planted mangrove trees, but they can not stop the erosion from eating away the shoreline and destroying their gardens. 
Sisters on the planet is a series of inspirational journeys of women fighting against climate change.
