china, ethiopia and rwanda. coming up on "earth focus." [drumming] >> this is china's loess plateau. until recently, this was one of the poorest regions in the country. a land renowned for floods, mudslides and famine. but with the fanfare comes the hope of change for the better. my name is john d. liu. i've been documenting the changes on the plateau for 15 years. i first came here in 1995 to film an ambitious project where local people were constructing a new landscape on a vast scale. transforming a barren land into a green and fertile one. the project certainly changed my life, convincing me to become a soil scientist. the lessons i've learned in the last few years have made me realize that many of the human tragedies that we regularly witness around the world, the floods, mudslides, droughts and famines, are not inevitable. here on the loess plateau i've witnessed that people can lift themselves out of poverty. they can radically improve their environment. and by doing so, reduce the threat of climate change. >> [singing] >> when i first came to the loess plateau, i was astound

china. they already suffer from catastrophic floods. sea level rises here would be an existential problem for the country and a potential crisis and as i look at it, but on the other at -- there are proximate problems. the country is a young democracy grappling with a lot of grassroots level issues. >> up by 2050, when their population reaches 200 million, rising sea levels may claim 20% of the nation's land mass. production could be decimated. >> my thought is that there will be social lack of cohesion. happen as we completely understand, these people will try to retire and drier ground. the only way to do this is moved to india. >> which may not be possible. .ndia has constructed a fence >> i would call it the worst, has already fenced bangladesh on all three sides and is in the process of electrifying the fence. the border is about the most lethal -- gleeful board or. corridor by.l given that kind of background in the scenario, imagine a large number of people try to cross over to india, crossing the fence. there will be a human catastrophe because the site will resist any kind
