1. The story of Hasina Begum, 35, a hardworking mother who is already experiencing the worst effects of climate change on Char Atra, a river island in Bangladesh.

    "The flood takes place more now in comparison to before. In the past, the flood used to come later in the year, now the flood comes in earlier and faster. When it comes, the water leaves much later on. It destroys the crops, jute, everything is destroyed by the flood. Nothing stays - the trees that I plant, the seedlings that we sow. The water comes in again and destroys it all. Finished. They don't grow any more."

  3. This is 11-year-old Keya's story. She's already experiencing the effects of climate change on her river island in Bangladesh. During the last flood, Keya's family spent over one month living on a raised platform the size of a double bed, whilst their home was under feet of water.

    "There was so much water; it was up to our knees. We couldn't get out, even if we wanted to. Our parents wouldn't let us out – what if we fell in the water? My youngest brother was being naughty and fell down, but my mother found him. I don't feel good about the floods. I can't study, I can't play, I can't go to school. I just have to sit at home and stay idle."
