Just a quick hello from the domestic airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh, where I’m waiting to board a flight to Jessore in the south. Some people say Bangladesh is the most vulnerable country in the world when it comes to climate change. I’ll be looking at what communities and non-governmental organizations are doing to get ready for a new world of storms, floods, droughts, salty soils and other unpleasantness. Then I’ll come back to Dhaka to talk to officials, scientists and activists about their priorities, successes and frustrations. Because this is for the “Food for 9 Billion” project, I’ll be asking mostly about food and agriculture.
Plane is boarding – all for now.
