Bangladesh is a small and beautiful asian country bordered by India and Burma and by the Bay of Bengal to the south. These incredible images of Bangladesh show the energy of the country, the people, the beautiful landscapes and natural sites. They capture life, in a part of the world ranked as one of the most vulnerable areas to the affects of climate change. Bangladesh is at a juncture of three river systems and is chronically flooded. In the coming decades rising sea levels could permanently uproot millions of coastal inhabitants.
