Zaldy Conde and his fellow fishermen prepare their boat for fishing. In Navotas, a fishing community in the Manila Bay, in the Philippines, fishermen have seen a drastic drop in their catches after a dumpsite was opened in 2013 in a coastal area nearby. Today their community is also filled with the trash coming from the dumpsite and most of the fish have disappeared. Their livelihoods are also threatened by other climate change related events, such as the increasing number of storms, as well as the competence from industrial fishing boats.
