My husband was working in a printing office in Kolkata and he died seventeen years ago. Because of this river, I lost my house four times before. I know I will lose my house again in the next monsoon. What will I do with my children? We are very sad. My sons catch fish in the river and also sail boats and in this way we keep on living here. How can I live with my children here? It is up to you."Locations:Asia-India-Indian Sundarbans-West BengalDate:2 Jul, 2009Credit:© Greenpeace / Peter CatonMaximum size:6328px X 4662pxKeywords:Beaches-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Flood defenses-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-One person-Outdoors-Poverty-Saris-Sea level rise-WomenShoot:Climate Voices in Indian SundarbansThe Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forest in the world, a particularly ecologically sensitive area.
