In the this project, Julia Manipella examines how Bangladesh's entrepreneurs and professionals work in Dhaka and across the region to solve industrial and climate problems creatively.

While the country faces hard-hitting statistics, metrics, predictions, and turmoil, young activists and entrepreneurs are looking outside the box to deal with environmental and industry issues as they have for previous social movements in the region. Manipella explores these challenges as the region prepares for internal migration to urban spaces from persistent flooding, drought, famine, and climate-based obstacles.
