Bangladesh is repeatedly afflicted by flooding, recognised throughout the world as one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change. For many, life has become a constant struggle to fight poverty and the floods.

Siraj Shahjahan meets husband and wife Shamsur Rahman Shaq and Mosamot Amena Begaumin in south-western Bangladesh, where they spend four months a year living inundated by flood waters. They have found a way to survive after being forced to give up planting crops on their flooded land.
