The South Asian country of Bangladesh is home to a dynamic delta area facing the Bay of Bengal. The world’s largest mangrove forest lives at this intersection between land and sea. Fed by rivers flowing mostly from its upstream neighbor, Bangladesh relies on its river systems to sustain a densely growing population. And Bangladesh is struggling with both slow-onset and rapid-onset impacts of global warming. The country’s water, agriculture, and health sectors are the most vulnerable in this regard. Due to limited resources compared to the scale of the challenges, Bangladesh is now facing hurdles in taking adequate adaptation measures to tackle the harmful impacts of climate change.
Mongabay is now accepting pitches for stories supported in this project that will feature the scenes and science of Bangladesh’s response to climate change, including the solutions needed to address complex problems and reverse environmental degradation.
