Chad - Climate - Darfur refugees

A refugee camp in Touloum in Tchad, close to the sudanese border. More than 23.000 refugees from Darfur, mainly women and children, live in the camp. The conflict in Darfur with its ethnic cleansing is also a direct result of climate change. Farmers and herders are pitted against each other over diminishing pasture and resources. The barren land is taken over by the Sahara desert, which has expanded 60 miles over the last 40 years. Rainfall is down by 16-30 percent. Crops are failing. With furt (Photo by Orjan F.
