A strong portrait is an image that can help tell a new story about climate change, and remake the visual representation of climate change in the public mind.
WHAT IT SHOWS: A man is working at a brick field with unhealthy conditions in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Laborers, including children, are working at the brick fields dawn to dusk in poor conditions and their wages do not meet to minimum standard. Bangladesh has ranked fastest growing country in the world as urbanisation increases rapidly. Bricks are the key materials to build building structures in this period of urbanisation. As large numbers of brick yards were established in farming lands this has reduced agriculture production. Most of the brick yards use woods, coal to burn raw brick increasing CO2 gas emissions.
