The Kiribati education ministry says there are many problems obstructing climate change and disaster education, Radio New Zealand International reports.
A curriculum development officer Teeta Kabiriera says there are no experts to work with curriculum writers so that resources can be developed on climate change information.
He also says teachers are lacking and aren’t equipped to teach these topics.
Mr Kabiriera says there is a development plan but the curriculum at the teachers college should be improved.
He told the joint climate change and disaster risk meeting in Fiji that the teachers college focuses only on numeracy and literacy.
