Around the world, at a local level, people are adapting in surprising ways, especially in some of the poorest countries. Foods have become more severe and damaging in Bangladesh in recent decades, with up to a third of the country submerged for some time every year. Mohammed Rezwan saw opportunity where others saw only disasters. His not-for-profit organisation, Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangtha, deploys 100 shallow-draft vessels that serve as floating libraries, schools, health clinics and gardens, and are equipped with solar panels, internet access and video conferencing facilities. Rezwan is creating floating connectivity to replace flooded roads and highways. But he is also working at a far more fundamental level: his staff show people how to make floating gardens and fish ponds to prevent starvation during the wet season.² – Tim Flannery
