Picturing: Turn Down the Heat

The World Bank’s second “Turn Down the Heat” report warns of dramatic changes that will occur in the world’s poorest countries if the Earth’s temperature rises 2-4°C above pre-industrial levels. The report delves into some of the changes that will impact Asia, one of the world’s most vulnerable regions, including water availability, agriculture yields, sea level, and the marine ecosystems that millions rely on for food and employment. Here is a collection of some of The Asia Foundation’s photography from the field that illustrates those changes in Asia.
