Scientists are predicting that climate change could lead to a rise in sea levels that would flood at least 17 percent of Bangladesh and create around 20-35 million refugees by 2050. Monsoon rains in the region are concentrating into a shorter period, causing a cruel combination of more extreme floods and longer periods of drought. In the capital of Dhaka, the impact is already being felt, with some half a million migrants arriving in the city each year. These “climate change refugees” are pouring mostly into squalid slums and the biggest reason for moving is environmental degradation.
