Shade Trees and Mangroves - Climate change in the South Pacific: The Pacific island nation Vanuatu is running out of time. The indigenous inhabitants are already suffering from floods, cyclones, coastal erosion and water shortages. And climate researchers say the extreme weather will increase and sea levels will continue to rise. Most members of the indigenous population depend on natural resources from farming, forestry and fishing. Now climate change is endangering the livelihoods of the islands' inhabitants. Since 2009, Germany has been funding educational measures for politicians and journalists, and has kick-started several projects for the local rural population. On the main island, Efate, for example, new more robust vegetable varieties are being cultivated, as well as shade trees with nitrogen-fixing properties. Hunted Hunters - The Awa indigenous people in the Brazilian rainforest: The Awa have adapted perfectly to life in the forest. But to survive there, they need a large area of intact rainforest. They're always on the move, depending on what fruit is in season and the movements of their prey. A protected area is supposed to protect their traditional way of life. But in reality the remote forests in northern Brazil are beyond the law. Settlers, loggers and pistoleros are pushing ever deeper into Awa territory, destroying the forest and killing the last members of this hunting and gathering people. Africa on the Move - Nigeria's modern medicine men: Fatunde Ojo is a traditional healer who lives in Kuruduma, a small suburb of Nigeria's capital Abuja. To find the ingredients for his medicine, he now has to travel long distances. Abuja is growing and the forests have to make way for it. More and more people come here to find work. Fatunde Ojo has to keep up with the times as well. The traditional healers now try to package their remedies professionally, to serve new markets. Fatunde Ono knows his business will suffer if he sticks to old methods. Competition is fierce among the healers. To stay in business, he distributes flyers advertizing his medicine throughout the city. Rotting Grain - Scandal in India: Since the financial crisis at the latest, India has been considered a model market economy. The government in Delhi expects nine percent growth in 2012. But that doesn't mean fewer people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. At the same time millions of tons of rice and grain are rotting in the open air. In Punjab alone, a region in the north of the country, more than 100,000 sacks are stored. The grain is rotting and no longer fit for human consumption. The stench is unbearable and vermin are spreading. The fermenting goods are given to wine growers to distil spirits and to livestock breeders as fodder. In the meantime, food prices rose by 60 percent last year.
