A report by Human Rights Watch shows that in some areas affected by climate change, young girls are feeling social pressure to marry for security. For example, floods and cyclones increase the salinity of soils in coastal agricultural areas like Bangladesh’s fragile Sundarbans mangrove forest, which depresses crop production and leads to malnutrition, poverty and out-migration. Young girls like Sultan are encouraged to marry young, “before their houses are swept away.” Photo credit: Reuters
