Earth in Crisis DVD 1

Synopsis
The aim of this DVD is to build understanding of how debates on climate change play out in two very different countries, namely Bangladesh, a low lying country that is heavily afflicted by poverty, and one of the wealthiest countries in the world, the United Kingdom.

Adapting to Climate Change 1: Khulna district, Bangladesh. This video examines the efforts of communities in Bangladesh to adapt to the increasing salinisation of river water caused in part by climate change.

Adapting to climate change 2: The Thames Gateway, UK. This video examines how public authorities in Kent are preparing for the possibility of sea level rise.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
