In West Africa, the Sahara desert is growing by thousands of square kilometers a year and the search for water for people and their animals becomes ever more desperate. “When I was young it was easy to get water, but not these days,” said Alioune Modhi, a Mauritanian nomad. “Sometimes I dig 12 wells and still don’t find water. It’s our biggest problem.” 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.
