Many wonder about the reasons for the large protests in Brazil in June 2013, especially for the criticism of the World Cup that was echoed in these demonstrations.

Re-thinking poverty in light of climate change

334 species of plants. 693 different kinds of animals, including 49 species of mammals, 59 reptiles and 315 water birds. 1,600 square miles of land and 725 square miles of water. Three wildlife sanctuaries. The Sundarbans, the world’s largest, contiguous mangrove forest located along the coast of India and Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal, is home to all of this. Just outside, 1.7 million people live along the forest's outskirts, with many depending on its resources. The impact of climate change and environmental degradation have put both humans and habitat at risk. But that risk presents the forest and its people with a unique opportunity for transformation that can set an example for the rest of the world.
