Climate Brides

What does climate change look or feel like to you? For some of us, it may be the image of a Polar Bear on thin ice. For others, drought stricken stretches of barren land. For many young women in developing nations, it is premature marriage and pregnancy. ‘Climate brides‘ are married off in their teens by their families to relieve them from the brunt of financial duress brought on by climate change.

A cartoon on climate brides this Earth Day for DW Global Ideas. Visit and follow the Climate Brides Podcast for more information on this issue.
