50,000 farmers who lost their land to climate change-related river erosion in Bangladesh, participated in a radical project which transformed barren land into huge pumpkin fields. Since the first trials in 2005, more than 90,000 tonnes of produce has been grown, eaten or sold by more than 16,000 of the poorest people in Bangladesh. With the effects of climate change already making its appearance in Malaysia, we found out more about the project from Nazmul Islam Chowdhury, the Project Manager of Pumpkins Against Poverty at Practical Action Bangladesh, and discuss how we might incorporate such projects in our own lands.
