NEW DELHI: Living on the Go - a documentary film on climate change and human migration aims to catalyse positive and proactive policy decisions in Bangladesh and internationally towards climatic issues addressability and risk mitigation. Commissioned by Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and produced by Television Trust for the Environment (http://www.tve.org), this action oriented film was executed by 24 Frames Films as tve's regional partner and regional thought leader.
The film has its base in Bangladesh - which is too often at the mercy of extreme weather. Densely populated and low lying, it's one of the 10 countries most vulnerable to the impacts of a changing global climate - cyclones, floods, erosion and drought are destroying the livelihoods for millions, forcing them to move. So how can millions of Bangladeshis protect their families and their incomes?
A joint team of researchers from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh and University of Sussex are looking at the impact of climate change on migration. Their research could help provide the answer and shape better public policy.
Living on the Go, a film based on this research, follows communities in the Gabura, Satkhira region who were affected by cyclone Aila in 2009. To cope with the after effects, some of them migrated inland in search of livelihood. Speaking about the film, Arjun Pandey, Director, 24 Frames Films, said, "Creating a sustainable world has been at the forefront of our communication objective. 24 Frames will continue to work towards creating environment consciousness and catalysing the much needed change. And one day, we will surely have a better world."
