An introductory podcast in which fellow Incoming Commonwealth Scholar, Taiwo Afolabi, asks me about myself, what brought me to Victoria and what I hope to gain from the QES program.
Climate Change is one of the largest challenges facing the world today. It is a global problem that affects all life on the planet. However, it is commonly understood that some groups or regions are more vulnerable to climate change. In general, people in the global south, indigenous communities, those reliant on natural resources for livelihoods, and people living in poverty are most severely and immediately affected by the impacts of changing temperatures. Living in Bangladesh, a country greatly affected by climate change, and working at an organization that researches climate change adaptation and migration, has provided me with a unique opportunity to expand my knowledge of these issues. Therefore, I have chosen to write my fourth blog on climate change, adaptation and gender in Bangladesh.
