Flight in the Storm by Daniela Solera Meneses
In this photo, Daniela Solera Meneses captures the urgency during a downpour in San José, Costa Rica. As the world heats due to climate change, the atmosphere can hold more water. So, when it rains, it pours.
Daniela wanted to capture our cities’ battle to cope with extreme weather and took this photo as waters from heavy rainfall overflowed across the street. Across the world, cities are being forced to prepare not only for today’s weather but also for the weather we might face in the future, as human actions continue to change our climate.
As Daniela puts it, “we have work to do in areas such as prioritising urban resilience and disaster risk reduction strategies.”
