Climatic changes and chronic food insecurity, have pushed some vulnerable fishing and farming families in coastal regions to the brink of hopelessness. This documentary reflects the work of Oxfam with two coastal village communities of Badin. Their "Holistic climate change advocacy and adaptation project" revolves around disaster risk reduction, natural resource management, agriculture and livelihoods. The major elements of the project are construction of an emergency shelter, bio gas plants, use of solar panels for electricity generation, and reclamation of land for agricultural purposes. The documentary shows the eagerness of the village people towards making sustainable change and improving their livelihoods by countering the effects of climate change.
The final product was shown at the International Climate Change Conference in Pakistan held on the 21st and 22nd of October, 2010 to promote further funding and deeper coordination from other institutions.
