The last mountain road you drive through en route to the village of Ha Tsui is called the God Help Me Pass, and after a few days in the village it is easy to see why. The mountains of Lesotho have seen declining snow- and rainfall in recent years, and for the people of Ha Tsui, poor harvests have become the norm. â€œLife will be tough because we donâ€™t have any food,â€ said village chief, Paulosi Lebakeng. â€œEven when the crops grow well they donâ€™t produce enough to feed our families.â€ As the Poznan Climate Change conference enters its final days, IRIN, with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) launched eight short videos exploring the human cost of climate change in Africa.
