As crunch climate talks get underway in Paris, we report from Bangladesh, one of the worst-affected countries for "climate refugees" - those forced to leave their homes and communities because of the effects of global warming.


Rising sea levels and the increasing salinity of arable soils are all having a massive impact on the lives of many Bangladeshis. With a population of nearly 160 million inhabitants, this phenomenon is fuelling poverty and a mass exodus to overcrowded urban areas.

This programme was prepared by Patrick Lovett, Laura Burloux and Elom Marcel Toble.
