Coexisting with climate change

Coexisting with climate change

Abdul Latief, 62, has been a fisherman for 37 years. Since the sea has penetrated deeper inland, the wind became stronger and fish are harder to find. Nowadays he spends more money on fuel for his boat than what he can earn. His house flooded for the first time in 2008 and since then he has already elevated it twice, in 2009 and 2019. Today floods are getting higher but Abdul hasn't got enough money to elevate his house again. His family wants to move inland but for Abdul fishing is his life.
