'High Tide' - Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh
Size: B6 (160 x 118 mm)
Material: 100% recycled paper
As the sun goes down, fishermen cast the nets in the Bay of Bengal near Kolatali beach, Cox's Bazar. Many of the fishermen in Cox's Bazar are self-declared 'climate refugees', forced to migrate from islands off the coast of Bangladesh due to rapid coastal erosation and rising sea levels. Since 1991, it is estimated that 40,000 people have fled from the island of Kutubdia alone, which has halved in size to approximately 100 square kilometres. The Coastal Association for Social Transformation Trust, a Bangladeshi NGO, is working with climate-affected refugees in Cox's Bazar to help rebuild their lives and gain ongoing social-economic sustainability. The purchase of this People & Planet greeting card has supported the Coastal Association's valuable work with climate refugees.
