6:20 am
in these horrible tragedies really are a symptom of some of the increasingly hard line, border enforcement policies that we've been tracking and seeing all around europe and indeed the world. and unfortunately with increasing border enforcement and the way that you know, different context across the world are developing, people are sometimes forced to take more dangerous route. we're really talking about open water. and oftentimes people resort to having to take a small boat that is often overloaded with people. and these votes are not really made to carry large groups with people, for example. and also, you know, just the basic kind of navigation that is sometimes very difficult is very hard for people who are desperately seeking safety. really important for us to remember that, you know, this kind of sharp border enforcement that we keep all around europe in the book called it for to europe. it will not stop people from seeking safety. instead, it'll compel people to take more dangerous routes to try and circumvent being
6:21 am
captured by border forces. and at the end of the day, it's really more about thinking about the humanity of it all. we're talking about human beings that are losing their lives at sea. and instead it's incumbent upon all of us to think about how we address the root causes that for people to migrate in the 1st place. the largest and most powerful space telescope, as a belt has been launched into space from south america. find his hope. the james web telescope will help humans better understand the formation of stars and galaxies that are over 13000000000 years old mania rapids report from the launch site in coral entrench ganna. jeff thought it's the space mission 25 years in the make. ah, the launch of the genes web space telescope, the largest and most powerful space observatory ever build, is one for the history books. as successor to the celebrated hubble mission, scientists say the technology board,

6:23 am
by pulling our resources, pulling our expertise, but always with one goal in mind, let's do the most challenging things that are possible. 20 seconds of the flight, the web launch was carried out by the private space firm arianne space, a top in ari and 5 rocket, specially suited for this particular mission. in deed ions 5 as been chosen due to its reliability. it's like we called but that so it's capacity to performance. the very specific volume we can accommodate until the ferrying so 20 years ago in the early 2000 it was decided that web will belonged by i and for a while, celebrations are under way following the successful launch of the james web space telescope. it'll still be a nail biting 30 days before it reaches its orbit. now on its way to its orbit at a location known as lagrano point to some one and

6:25 am
increase their water attention capacity. so when it rains, it lasts a few months. 48 reservoirs with some up to 800 feet deep, have helped more than 74000 people in this terrain. the indiscreet trust says it's use corporate social responsibility funds from logical operations, and there's no government assistance to provide water to villages. bonds like these have help people adapt to the changing climate, but they're still angry of the politicians who represent them saying they only come here for votes. and basic services such as health, education and accessibility are still non existent. activists say big landowners are still underestimating the impact of climate change with killing the abductions common here. they say it's risky to raise their voice for basic rights. if that is school, we need school, hospitals, and roads. the most important necessity is water. and about a month this water will dry up and we'll have to travel far to get some children
6:26 am
cry if durst, when we run out. and when pregnant women travel for water, many faint and his no nearby health facility gave me, lives become tougher here as yearly rainfall has dwindled, a car says during the time of ancestors, water was plentiful, but now it runs out and many people are forced to migrate and then be delivered, and you don't need to like 360, not even a road, but we are desperate for water for ourselves. and our jacqueline minutes to say it's not possible to reach everyone is focused on is among the top 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change focus on cash strapped. government says it's a victim of climate injustice. we estimated between fixed and $14000000000.00 a year that we have to spend because a forced to that vision. it's not a choice. we have to be, we are forced to adapt to climate change. and these fund come come out of our practice to help out of education out of governance. so i think this is the area
6:27 am
where the world needs to wake up because this injustice cannot continue with some help. people are adapting, harnessing solar energy has meant there's been diverse migration in some villages. having electricity is like a medical for the, with the family. they can finally book after daylight hours for grades and we have electricity now and the children can study. but we still have no water or gas, so we have to carry water on our heads. but despite all this, some of our villages have returned as there is electricity. here. small scalable projects can be adapted for larger communities if there's political will and money . but focus on what challenges are complex, multifaceted and time is running out to address them from a majority to their correspond. southern pakistan, greece is about to restore a grand entrance to the acropolis in athens,
6:28 am
but best coughing controversy. among some archeologist john surplus reports from athens to enter the acropolis in athens, visitors zigzag up this ramp built in the 1950s. greece as it is now, going to give them the experience athenians enjoyed 25 centuries ago when they came to worship their patron goddess athena. a grand staircase, 25 meters wide envisioned as part of the gateway to the acropolis and reimagined by artists for centuries. the peloponnesian war between athens and sputter interrupted its completion. but the man in charge of restoration on the acropolis as rebuilding, it would be a celebration of the democracy that conceived it. with the establishment of democracy. the number of citizens was 10000 and all of them had to participate to the festival. it was a duty for thee and since citizens,
6:29 am
they participation and tear, therefore they had seriously and substantially to widen, to increase they weight of the ramp. and finally, to create the staircase want dictated the width of the staircase, was the width of the entrance to the acropolis behind me. built 25 centuries ago. it was designed to allow at least $10000.00 athenians and dozens of sacrificial oxen on to the open space. around the temple of athena, where a great sacrifice would take place each year. chorus intends to open up this gate house so that all 5 of its doorways can be used. but some archaeologists say rebuilding the staircase crosses a line from restoration to reconstruction. or you gonna get these from up there though? i don't say that we should necessarily preserve the zigzag ramp, but this is not a decision of one person. there needs to be a wider discussion. it's a huge intervention. even if we had all the original material that we don't have
6:30 am
the right to do it on such a scale, then in and get us get plenty of new marble has been inserted into the buildings of the acropolis as part of a 40 year restoration project, including in the gate house whose restoration, daniela's oversaw, it's a compromise between 2 schools of thought. conservationists believe in preserving the historical record interventionists would rebuild the temple of athena to its classical glory. and it is that high classical period that tourists come to mark and celebrate to day. so it would appear that got us is merely giving the greeks and the world's visitors what they want. but critics say his view favors some parts of the archaeological record over others. jumps are hopeless. al jazeera athens. ah, well, again, i'm fully back, you know, with the headlines.
