Picture of the week: Dhaka's climate refugees

A Bangladeshi man sorts aluminum from industrial waste in the country's capital Dhaka. The city is a magnet for climate refugees from rural areas, particularly in the south. Many end up picking through waste to make a living or working in poor conditions in polluting factories. Around 40 percent of the city's nearly 7 million people live in slums, according to the World Bank.
