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 to climate change. I’ll be looking at what communities and NGOs are doing to get ready for a new world of storms, floods, droughts, salty soils and other unpleasantnesses. 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.
