Photographer description: A group of women weave a fishing net in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam, in preparation for the annual flooding of the river system. Fishing communities rely on this flooding to bring an influx of fish and shrimp to the region. With climate change worsening, flood levels are becoming more inconsistent, which has important consequences for the livelihood of locals. In 2012, lower than average flood levels saw fish yields decrease by 40% on the previous years yield.
