How is climate change affecting you? Now you can show its impact through pictures.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has launched an online photo contest to find the best images which represent the effects of climate change in Asia and the Pacific.

People who want to participate in the #Click4Climate campaign have to share their photographs on social media and explain the meaning of the image in  less than a 100 words.

According to the ADB, Asia and the Pacific are the most affected regions by climate change impacts.

It also stated since 1990 Asia’s carbon dioxide emissions doubled to 37% and is expected to reach around 46% by 2035.

Satinder Bindra, Principal Director of ADB’s Department of External Relations said: “It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words so we are inviting all amateur photographers to give us their visual take on climate change, which affects all of us in many different ways. In December, countries from around the world will be making decisions on our planet’s future in Paris, France and it is important leaders get our views on this crucial issue.”

Pictures can be posted until the 30th of September and winners will be announced on October 14th.
