Mudslides destroy homes and powerful cyclones tear children from their mothers’ arms. People are tormented by droughts and heat, the awaited rainy season nowhere to be seen. And when the rains do start, they are so strong that crops are wiped out.
Warmer Days depicts the struggle for survival that is everyday life for people in Myanmar, a country torn by climate change. Could answers to the problems caused by extreme weather events be found in sustainable construction, new types of crops, mangrove forests or expanding education for women?
