Here’s a Look at the Water Crises That Might Be Coming to You Soon” is the headline for a recent NYT article. The author is Somini Sengupta, the NYT international climate correspondent. She traveled through Bangladesh to meet people adapting to water crises aggravated by climate change. These are issues well-known to the farming communities of Jaldhaka district served by OfP. Sengupta’s story is positive, identifying the risks but focusing on the nation’s adaptation, such as early warning systems, innovative farming techniques and rainwater capture.
