If the waters destroy our house, where will we go?

Just a decade ago, farmer Bilal Hossein lived comfortably, but now he can barely make ends meet after his land was submerged by seawater.

Like many of the five million people who live in the Satkhira district of southern Bangladesh, Bilal is now thinking of emigrating from his village.

Climate change has been especially devastating to the coastal areas of Bangladesh, rendering villages uninhabitable.

BBC Bangla visited the area and spoke with many villagers struggling to cope with the impact of climate change.
