Storyteller's Paradise

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."
