The company I work for recognises the importance of climate change and the impact that water insecurity will have on our planet. I’ve just read this article on the BBC Website. It paints a pretty scary picture really, with less developed countries particularly at risk because of a lack of infrastructure and investment. Often these countries are also in dry and arid areas. The short voluntary work I did in Niger with MapAction highlighted the climatic instability which the local population are faced with. In Niger, months of drought are then met with flash floods. And press coverage is always very limited. Click here to donate to the UNICEF appeal which will help those affected by climate change, like those in Niger.
