Gold World Medal : 2008
Achieved “Gold World Medal” for editing radio documentary on Climate Change issue in 2008. Titled “Living in Insecure Ground: Fight against natures’ power” Organized by New York International Radio Festival, USA. The result is available at here. Bangladesh Betar and Deutschewella Radio jointly produced this programme.
The focus area of this radio documentary was the Gaibandha zone at the northern part of Bangladesh, where people are most vulnerable to recurrent flood attacks. In this radio documentary, my self and Mr. Peter Koppen from Deutschewella radio tried to figure out how the innocent rural people in a remote village/char land of Bangladesh become the victims of widely articulated climate change issue. Although in our findings, they are not responsible for the cause despite they are the stakeholders who had to pay the maximum cost.
