Video: The Rising Tide

Ekta Kothari submitted this video on January 8,

2010 as an entry to the ExchangesConnect 2009 Video Contest ‘Change Your Climate, Change Our World’. This film highlights the impacts of climate change in the Sundarbans, which is located across areas of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. The rising sea level has already claimed an island leaving over 10,000 people homeless and sending fresh waves of climate

migrants every year.

The film also offers solutions, highlighting the urgency for mitigation and adaptation efforts and creation and implementation of adaptation funds to help these people combat the effects of climate change better.
