Painting climate change in Bangladesh

UK newspaper The Guardian has a gallery of eight paintings created by the Bangladesh government and NGOs to teach people in rural Bangladesh about climate change and how to adapt to it.

In its today released annual report, “The State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA)”, FAO says that about a third of the global food aid budget (ca. USD 600 million) is being spent in donor countries and never reaching beneficiaries.
