    Women in the tiny village of Daku on the Fijian island of Viti Levu are fighting climate change. Because the men are catching fewer fish and shrimp, women have stepped into the breach. They're selling hand-woven fans made of palm leaves. With the clearing of the mangroves, the Rewa River is now clogged with sediment and the number of fish has declined dramatically. The village's 400 residents are making up for the economic loss through the sale of fans.
