Reports coming in from the field trips by delegates to see adaptation in practice. Bettina Koelle reports: "After spending the night in Bhola town, we boarded speed boats to travel up the often narrow channels that form the way to Char Kukri Mukri. Established only some 50 years ago, the island’s community face a number of challenges in their already difficult lives, including more frequent and intense cyclones and the huge tidal surges that come with them. These tidal surges often flood the entire island, taking people, homes and livestock with them. After the flooding, the challenge of salinity on the arable lands remains, preventing the local farmers from planting fruit or vegetable trees. read moreWomen tending the mangrove seedlings

They are confronted by a dilemma common to many conferences like this – which of the concurrent sessions to attend. The choice this morning is between agriculture and water, which OneWorld is streaming live, and how institutions can scale up their adaptation experiences. read more
