In the desertic Azawak region of Niger and Mali, the rains have drastically decreased. Twenty years ago the season lasted 5 months. Now, rain falls for one or two months.
In this interview, Ariane Kirtley, founder and director of Amman Imman: Water is Life, discusses how, in areas already plagued by very difficult geopolitical situations, climate change not only causes severe water scarcity but also affects people’s safety.
Ariane speaks with journalist Armelle Charrier of France 24 on the show L’Entretien about the adverse affects of global warming and water insecurity on people’s lives.
