Floating Gardens of Bangladesh: ADAPTATION begins in the lush deltas of Bangladesh, where Alizé journeys for her research. Here she learns how communities are adapting to changing monsoons and dangerous sea level rise. Floating gardens and floating schools are just the start of some of the country’s innovative strategies.
Alizé Carrère is a National Geographic Explorer, filmmaker, and PhD student researching and documenting human adaptations to environmental change. Raised in a house wrapped around a 300-year old oak tree, her childhood primed her for a unique perspective on what it means to live in a dynamic environment. After moving to Montreal to complete a B.A. at McGill University in Environmental Sciences and International Development, she spent time living in Panama before returning to McGill to complete an M.Sc. in Integrated Water Resource Management. During this time, she lived in the Middle East working on the relationship between electronic waste and water pollution in Israel and Palestine.
