Climate Change is a new phenomena that will impact people in the future.

South Asia is going to face vast problems with climate change and that this is related to poverty and the very varied climate and geography in the region.

 

 

Darfur:

The climate change in Darfur is causing a violent conflict over the scarcity of resources.

Sahel:

Poor rains in the Sahel this year mean harvests for staple food crops will likely be one-third lower than normal levels in Niger, northern Nigeria, central Chad and northeastern Mali and Burkina Faso.

    It’s interesting to see that climate change is affecting the situation in Darfur. I had no idea that climate change was a factor in the Darfur Conflict. This article is extremely heartbreaking.

    As if Darfur doesn’t have enough problems to deal with already. Parts of Central Africa are dealing with genocide and corruption and now they don’t even have water to drink. The climate of Africa already lends itself to harsh living conditions and it’s only going to get worse if things keep going the way they are.
