Climate induced loss and damage
Description: Short video made by about the impact of cyclone Winston on the village Nukubalavu on the Fiji Islands. "The idea of these videos came through discussions between Sabine Minninger of Bread for the World and me on the status quo of climate change in the south pacific. As a publisher, journalist and author I know from my daily work experience how important it is to fact check ideas, opinions and what we think is knowledge by actually traveling to the places and meet the person they are about. Only by that, we know if we are acting on solid ground – and often enough the reality is changing our belief system and moves to the better. By traveling during this journey to the Fiji Islands I learned as expected so much about the mentality and the real situation of the people there and hopefully, our film works transport this process and help the audience at home to get a glimpse too."
