“FLOWA(Flood Warnings):To prepare or not Prepare; utilizing local resources to mitigate sea level rise” for Ganges Delta Bangladesh by Jordana Vasquez, Angela Sun and Ebere Okparaeke, New York, USA – 2016 Shivaji Competition

The Buriganga river in the Ganges delta struggles with the never-ending problem of sea level rise and flooding. A resounding problem that might just be a visual reminder that sometimes climate change and management of services do not always align to sustainable resiliency. The Ganges’ high temperature and humidity allows for the proliferation of Jute over a short period of time. It is time to take Jute as example for its versatility and take advantage of its full potential to help these communities in distress while not straining land’s rich resources.As part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): our project FLOWA aims to appeal to the sustainability of measures that can mitigate the effects of climate change, especially rising waters. FLOWA is primarily about raising awareness of DIY natural resources like jute to combat climate change by preventing flood erosion, protecting riverbanks and   increasing the proliferation of natural vegetation.


“Rain rain go away. OMFG!” for Mississippi River Delta USA by Morgana King, New Orleans, USA –  www.yherdme.com – 2016 Shivaji Competition

We can’t absorb any more water! The fear is real! Whenever there is a rainy weather report New Orleans goes into panic mode to deal with flooding streets, and I especially have to worry about my animals. This week’s weather prediction is the first frame of the gif. Hurricane season is even scarier with constant thoughts of evacuating my goat herd to higher ground. (all images taken from internet)

In many ways, cutting carbon pollution is the ultimate adaptation to climate change. It stops the problem at the source. The GIF shows the reality of the 2°C climate goal, but also the even more stark choice we face if we let global temperatures to reach 4°C above pre-industrial levels because of unchecked carbon emissions. See what society faces if we do not reduce our carbon pollution.
