Children and adults scavenge for usable items in and around a garbage truck at the Trutier dump outside Port-au-Prince, the capital. The number of scavengers at the landfill has grown from about 200 to an estimated 2,000 since the earthquake, due to increased unemployment in the quake’s aftermath. “People need to find a way to support themselves and their families. They have no [other] option,” said the landfill’s chief engineer, Carl Henry Vielot. A 16-year-old boy scavenger added, “I...

Along with severe pollution and loss of biodiversity, climate change is the most urgent and alarming threat to the environment. Contributing to environmental degradation, loss of vital natural resources and the conditions that undermine food and water security, it disrupts the very context in which adolescents live and develop. Climate change and increased frequency and severity of humanitarian crises have the potential to adversely impact not only young people’s health and nutrition, but a...

From David McCandless: It’s difficult to keep track of all this shifting information on sea level rises. It doesn’t help that in climate change reporting, a consistent but bewildering assumption is repeatedly made: that we understand what a 1 metre sea level rise actually means. So, in this latest diagram for The Guardian Datablog, I’ve tried to sum up all the current research on sea level rises. What will happen, when it will happen, and where all that sea water will come from. And to...

But it’s not just about losing the volume of water… Losing the Identity of a Nation The Dead Sea is a prominent feature that defines Jordan.

I always think that this is really serious to the people in Jordan since the Dead Sea brings in so much tourism and all. However, the friend says that people simply are not aware and would ra...

Leather processing zone in Dhaka's Hazaribagh neighbourhood must be one of the most polluted area in Bangladesh. To keep production cost low, informal industries that make glue from waste leather, burn everything for processing, including tires, plastics, papers, as well as leather waste. Most industries based in urban area in Bangladesh pollute environment but leather tanneries probably do the worst damage. Hazaribagh, Dhaka's leather processing zone, is right in the middle of one of the most...
