Gabura is an island in southern Bangladesh, home to 44 000 people. A thirty kilometers long embankment surrounds Gabura and protects the island from the water beyond. As a result of climate change, the sea level rises higher every day. The embankment is all that protects the island from vanishing altogether. Every so often, parts of it collapse from erosion, making the island even smaller. The locals are forced to move further inland, towards the center of the island, as more and more of it is eaten away by the sea.
