Mangroves: A nature-based solution for climate adaptation

The Sundarbans. The world’s largest mangrove forest. A source of livelihood to millions.

Premiering at COP26, this film follows Basanta Mondal as he struggles with nature, and finds much-needed help in Friendship’s mangrove afforestation project.
