Climate Change in Bangladesh – A film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Anastasia Mikova:
It is the biggest river delta in the world, and it’s a country. Its name is Bangladesh.
There are no real boundaries here between the land and the sea.
Almost 300 waterways cross Bangladesh defining both its geography and its people’s way of life.
From north to south via the capital Dhaka, the country’s 160 million inhabitants among the poorest and most densely populated in the world, have learnt to live surrounded by water and to adapt to its whims.
In the south in the Bay of Bengal, 3 of the planets greatest rivers, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Meghna, discharge every year more than a billion tons of sediment and more water than the all of Europe rivers put together.
Here and for all, it remains the main resource, either for fishing or for agriculture upon which nearly 70% of Bangladeshis. But now the water, this time ally, has become a real threat. Caught between snow melt glaciers of the Himalayas to the north, and the rising waters of the Indian Ocean to the south, residents find themselves overwhelmed by the water. Cyclones, hurricanes, floods, erosion, land, located five meters above sea level, the locally suffers consequences of a global warming of which he is not responsible.
Worse, if global warming continues unabated, Bangladesh could lose up to 17% of its territory from here in 2050. Between 20 and 40 million people would be left without land while underfoot. Walking through Bangladesh to the Bay of Bengal to the south, the “tanks”, these northern precarious islands, through Dhaka or Chittagong, the largest cemetery of ships in the world, the film tells the story of this country, front line of climate change and whose survival hangs by a thread.

Here are two seemingly unrelated facts: Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries when it comes to the effects of climate change. Around 30% of girls in Bangladesh are married before their 15th birthday.
Hidden Connections is a 20 minute documentary revealing how these two facts are intertwined.
Bristhi and Razia live in Dhaka. Brishti is 14 and works in a garment factory. Her husband’s family has thrown her out because her father hasn’t paid her dowry. Razia is 15 and works as a maid. She lives with her parents but her father worries neighbours will see her talking with boys and wants her married before her prospects are ruined.
Both girls are from families who lost their homes to river erosion. Unable to sustain life in villages, as longer droughts and increased flooding made farming impossible, they came to Dhaka to earn a living. In the film we hear their stories, meet their families and friends, and discover how climate change is pushing social change — and moving things backwards for many girls in Bangladesh.

Within the next 30 years, up to 20% of Bangladesh will disappear beneath the water as rivers and sea levels rise. This will put as many as 30 million people on the move.
Climate researchers say it’s just the first manifestation of a process that will soon be happening all over the world. This film takes us on a journey to the Bangladesh of the future, a country that’s set to suffer terribly from climate change. The Meghna River has already turned into a torrent that’s nine kilometers wide in places, a mass of moving water that flows ten times faster than the Rhine. “It demolished the house I moved into as a bride,” Momtaj Begum says. “It’s where I gave birth to my four children. It breaks my heart.” She and her son are saving what they can before the river sweeps everything relentlessly into the sea. Her village looks like a battlefield. The Meghna has cut deep into the ground, and is literally ripping the soil away beneath the residents’ feet.
Momtaj Begum and her family of eight have already been turned into climate refugees. Her village was swallowed by the river, along with many others. Around 2,000 displaced people like her arrive in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka every day. With a population topping 20 million and a crumbling infrastructure, the city is on the verge of collapse. The climate refugees that arrive here are now forcibly moved on again, this time by the government. Shantytowns are destroyed by police raids and bulldozers. And what’s happening in Bangladesh is only the beginning. Before long, every country in the world will begin to notice the effects of rising sea levels.

In June 2, 2014, Michael C. Hall travels to Bangladesh to see how climate change will impact workers and the poor in developing countries in the coming decades, when a projected 150 million people will be forced to leave their homes to escape sea level rise and increased drought, insect-borne disease and flooding.
He finds that in low-lying, flood-prone, densely populated Bangladesh, sea level rise and the lengthening of the monsoon season, both caused by global warming, have already caused a migration of coastal people to Dhaka and other cities, and even across the border into India, because they have lost their homes or livelihoods. These factors are projected to lead to the displacement of 20 million of Bangladeshis by 2100, who are often forced to take dangerous work. Hall notes that since the US has contributed a large portion of the emissions already in the atmosphere, it bears responsibility for the climate change impacts in poorer nations.
On June 9, 2014, Hall concludes his journey to Bangladesh, where rising seas are expected to submerge 17% of the country. He learns that global warming is a human rights, public health and foreign policy issue.

This video documentary explores climate migration in Bangladesh. Footage was filmed on site in Bhola, Chittagong and Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Forced migration is a fact of life for countless Bangladeshis. The mix of factors contributing to migration is difficult to dissect but there appears to be far more “push” than “pull”: movement is typically forced by necessity rather than impelled by opportunity.
Climate change is difficult to isolate as “the” cause of movement but impossible to dismiss as contributing agent. Lack of basic education is a key factor limiting options for daily wage labourers and their respective families, constraining many to struggle for subsistence survival in subhuman conditions in urban slums where vulnerabilities can be more pronounced than problems in rural context communities which triggered the migration in the first place.
As one of three international PhD case studies that deal with climate change related migration, Bangladesh field research sought to assess the contributing role that climate change related problems and rapid onset disasters may have on human movement in the environmental context of densely settled megadeltaic regions.
Conducting grassroots fieldwork across the whole spectrum of human migration or displacement (incorporating both communities of origin and destination), there was a special emphasis on hearing from people directly affected by migration over and above people primarily knowledgeable about them.
In keeping with the intended research questions the case study did not seek to argue for or against the causality nexus between climate change and migration. Rather it conceptualised both present and future forced human movement, including that which may be related to climate change, as causing the least disruption and suffering, if dealt with before its manifestation and possible deterioration into a humanitarian crisis requiring ad hoc emergency intervention.
Forward-planning and preparedness were identified as key success factors for more benign (“less bad”) migration outcomes.
Many migrants would prefer to return to their communities of origin if they had a realistic prospect to find work. This apparent preference makes adaptation and education measures in their communities of origin an important priority. Poverty reduction, livelihood security, education, and better government planning are recommended as essential policy priorities for preparedness informed and more equitable migration management outcomes.
The Bangladesh case study can be accessed in Chapter 5 (pp. 167-220) of my thesis:

Just one mile from the capital city of Bangladesh, Dhaka, large shanty towns house some of the country’s poorest people.
With unemployment rates in the millions, these impoverished Bangladeshis face a hard future.
The solution for many is to migrate to the cities in search of work.
But, massive urban migration has led to a proliferation of slums leading to congestion, unsanitary conditions and disease.
Bangladesh is located in the world’s largest river delta – the Ganges delta.
The United Nations Population Fund estimates that Bangladesh has a population of almost 142 million, the largest of the least developed countries in the world.
Just one mile from Dhaka are shanty towns housing the country’s poorest people.

Ten years ago, in November 2006, Al Jazeera English was launched. To mark that anniversary, we’ve created REWIND, which updates some of the channel’s most memorable and award-winning documentaries of the past decade. We find out what happened to some of the characters in those films and ask how their stories have developed in the years since our cameras left.
In November 2012, a fire at the Tazreen Fashions factory in Bangladesh killed at least 112 people. Found among the ashes were the charred remains of garments being manufactured for large US clothing companies.
So why were they being made there, and what do huge multinational corporations do to monitor working conditions in factories like these?
In this Peabody award-winning episode of Al Jazeera’s Fault Lines strand, reporter Anjali Kamat went in search of answers.
Since that report aired, however, worker conditions in factories have been slow to change and industry reforms haven’t been easy.
REWIND revisits that documentary and the underlying issues for factory workers that largely remain today.

A lot of our clothes bear the label ‘Made in Bangladesh’. But before the deadly collapse of a garment factory there last April, most of us never thought about the people who make them. After clothes bound for Canada were found in the rubble of Rana Plaza, Canadian companies reacted with surprise – how could such a tragedy happen?
the fifth estate’s Mark Kelley went to Bangladesh and tracked down workers who say they are still forced to make clothes for Canada in dangerous conditions. And Kelley goes behind bars for an exclusive interview with the jailed owner of one of the biggest factories inside Rana Plaza, who details his long-standing, multi-million dollar connections to Canada.
Made in Bangladesh won the 2014 International Emmy® Award for Current Affairs programming.

We paid $26 to sleep in a First Class Cabin on Bangladesh’s 100 year old “Rocket Paddle Steamer”! Would you do it?
We are currently in our 97th country of Bangladesh, and after spending our first 2 days in the crazy city of Dhaka, we boarded this 100 year old ship to sail overnight to Barisal. Paddle steamers have been traveling Bangladesh’s rivers since the early 1900s, but today there are only 3 left in service. The river is filled with hundreds of modern ferries that are faster and more comfortable, but tonight’s journey isn’t about the speed or the comfort, it’s about experiencing a way of travel that has remained unchanged for almost 100 years!
