'Everyday Stories of Climate Change', is a comic that threads together qualitative research about low-income families' experiences and adaptation to climate change across five countries. Readers will start in Australia and then head to Bangladesh where sea-level rise impacts women’s domestic duties. Next, they will travel to South Africa, where drought is experienced differently based on a person’s race.
After this, readers cross the Atlantic Ocean to Bolivia where migration allows families to adapt to climate change, but the separation of family members can strain relationships. From here, they go to Puerto Rico where food security is an issue after Hurricane Maria. Finally, you go to the Caribbean Island, Barbuda, where people are resisting disaster capitalists after Hurricane Irma.
