Sun Come Up chronicles the relocation of some of the world’s first environmental refugees. With a population of about 2,500 people, the Carterets are a group of Papua New Guinea islands located 53 miles northeast of Bougainville in the South Pacific. Because of climate change, it is estimated that the islands will be uninhabitable by 2015, making its people the first island community to undergo an organized relocation as a result of rising sea levels.
