Poor people in developing countries are already more affected by natural disasters. Climate change will only make this worse. Some of these changes are already happening. An Indonesian fisherman may go days without catching any fish. A farmer in Niger struggles to work her land despite diminishing rainfall.
How do you see climate change affecting people’s lives? Have you experienced its effects yourself? Have you seen how it has affected other people? Can you document those effects in a mini-documentary?
The World Bank’s Social Development Department is thrilled to announce the launch of a world-wide documentary competition, "Vulnerability Exposed: Social Dimensions of Climate Change". We hope to receive submissions of 2-5 minute documentaries which creatively showcase the social implications of climate change in the areas of conflict, migration, urban space, rural institutions, drylands, social policy, indigenous peoples, gender, governance, forests and/or human rights. You can win a trip to Washington, DC for a screening of the films and to attend a series of networking and learning events organized by the World Bank.
Submit your film by Friday, October 24, 2008!
