Myanmar: Storm watchers

Myanmar is the world's second most vulnerable country to extreme weather events. Every year, coastal communities in Rakhine State face cyclones and disastrous flooding. Between 2013-2018, CERA and Malteser International supported vulnerable communities to prepare for natural hazards. This film shows the benefits of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) activities and climate change adaptation from the perspectives of beneficiaries. Through three stories, Rakhine villagers give a first-hand account on the most significant changes brought to their lives. The stories reveal the importance of being prepared and empowered, of working together, of greater inclusion and of improved livelihoods.
