The Other Side of Paradise


The WMO film The Other Side of Paradise was chosen as an exhibit in Stories from the Field, the First United Nations Documentary Film Festival. 

The Festival took place in May and featured film screenings, panel discussions with the film-makers and award presentations. 

The Other Side of Paradise was conceived and created by WMO as a contribution to the International Meeting to Review the Implementation of the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Development States (Mauritius, January 2005), where it was premiered. It was also shown at the World Conference on Disaster Reduction (Kobe, Japan, January 2005).

 Small tropical islands are a tourists paradise but they mostly lie
 in areas prone to severe weather events and are highly vulnerable
 to the potential impacts of climate change.
