Pari – A child wades through the knee-high water, clutching his toy tightly. It shouldn’t get wet, and this danger is great in small pari. The island near the Indonesian capital Jakarta measures just four kilometers and is only a few hundred meters wide. Large-scale flooding used to only occur once a decade, but due to climate change this is happening more and more often. The residents don’t want to simply accept their fate; a year ago they filed a lawsuit against the Swiss cement giant Holcim.
