CDKN research partner SEEDS have produced a photo essay showing the challenges of climate change in a village in Leh, India. Here, flash floodingThe overflowing of the normal confines of a stream or other body of water, or the accumulation of water over areas that are not normally submerged.

Comprised of a series of striking photographs with minimal one line captions, the photo essay represents a highly innovative way of communicating the project’s work and impact.

SEEDS and four other research projects are being funded under the South Asia Regional Research Cell, managed by CDKN’s delivery partner START.
