Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange Food insecurity and malnutrition are some of the very real and tragic consequences of climate change. A mother holding her severely malnurished and ill child as a doctor tests the child for a variety of medical conditions in the Save The Children malnutrition clinic at the Aguie hospital in the Maradi region of southern Niger. Located in the Western Sahel, the landlocked country suffers from chronic malnutrition and food insecurity caused by climate related drought and erratic rainy seasons, inadequate arable land, one of the highest demographic growth rates in the world, poor social and sanitary living conditions and widespread poverty. Food insecurity affects children under five and women disproportionately, especially in rural areas. The effects of climate change exacerbate already precarious situations for millions of people in Africa and around the world.

Suffering from malnutrition themselves, mothers are often unable to breast feed which in turn causes malnutrition among their children. Niger consistently ranks as one of the poorest countries on earth.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange. Toposa tribal men and woman draw water from a hole dug in the dry bed of the Singaita River in Eastern Equatoria province. Drought, flooding and erratic rainy seasons in the Horn of Africa have severely affected the region in recent decades. Traditional pastoralist herdsmen depend on water resources and seasonal grazing lands for the survival of their all-important herds, their communities and way of life. Global warming induced climate change is making water resources and pasture lands increasingly scarce which in turn exacerbates tribal tensions and violence in the fragile young nation. #climatechangeisreal #climatechange, #globalwarming, #drought #water #pastoralists #tribes #SouthSudan #environment #Africa.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange Women sift sorghum grain in the fields near their village. Burkina Faso is a landlocked country situated in the semi-arid region of the western Sahel. With few natural resources, Burkina Faso consistently ranks as one of the poorest country in the world. During the 1990s the government invested massively in the cotton industry and gave favorable incentives to subsistence farmers to produce the cash crop in order to boost the country's economy. The conversion of the nation's limited arable land to cotton made Burkina Faso heavily dependent on food aid and the whims of global food prices. Despite producing some of the highest quality, cost-efficient cotton in the world, massive subsidies given to U.S. and European cotton producers have driven global cotton prices below production costs. These women's families were cotton farmers. After cotton prices plummeted, they now exclusively plant cereals and other subsistence crops that are less costly to produce, but don't allow them to make much money. Climate change has caused frequent and severe droughts in the Sahel, further jeopardizing both cotton and local food production. In 2008, the increase in global food prices and food shortages caused violent food riots in the capital Ouagadougou. The effects of climate change will only increase the strain on food security and act as a conflict multiplier, which could lead to food riots and other forms of violence in the future.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange. A fisherman casts his net early in the morning on the White Nile. South Sudan is the world's newest nation haveing gained independence from Sudan in July 2011 after a prolonged period of civil war. In addition to the negative impacts of long-term conflict, communities in South Sudan are also experiencing the adverse effects of a changing climate. The country is experiencing substantially warmer and drier weather, more frequent droughts and erratic rainfall, which is increasing the frequency and severity of floods. These climate change effects in turn decrease agricultural productivity, upon which the majority of the population depend for their livelihoods. Unless communities adapt to these climatic changes, climate change will hinder socio-economic development and contribute to existing tensions and conflict in the region. #Juba, #SouthSudan. #Africa #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #globalwarming #WhiteNile #fishing #fisherman #film #analogue #holga #lomogrsphy

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange Men from the Beja tribal group unload wood logs from camels to sell in the town of Hamesh Koraib in eastern Sudan near the border with Eritrea. The remote and barren region suffers from isolation and drought. Deforestation and climate change have caused more intense droughts, erratic rains and flooding which have ruined harvests, turned arable land into gravel and severely affected livestock. Research from a Sudanese government climate programme shows that the boundary between desert and semi-desert has shifted 50 to 200 km southward since the 1930s. Climate change is primarily caused by developed nations' greenhouse gas emissions. Developed countries are better equipped to absorb weather shocks and changes, but poorer nations such as Sudan, where two-thirds of the people are farmers, struggle to respond to droughts and floods. Currently Africa receives only 5% of the world's climate-related funding, despite suffering disproportionally from the impacts of global warming.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange What a difference a year makes. In June 2016, unusually heavy rains across France and many regions of Europe caused the Seine River to reach a level of more than 6 meters, one of highest levels on record, with flooding in Paris and many parts of France. A year later, the opposite has occurred. An extremely dry winter and hot Spring have created worrisome pre drought conditions in France. Rare at this time of year, many regions have imposed water usage restrictions. The level of the Seine has been as low as one meter. Global warming and climate change are making extreme weather conditions increasingly frequent across the globe. #climatechangeisreal #Paris #France #Europe #Seine #SeineRiver #LaSeine #climatechange #globalwarming #flooding #drought

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange As the mercury flirts with 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees F) this week in Paris and South Western France, 16 departments have been placed on Orange heatwave alert. Repeated heatwaves in France, Europe and around the world could be a harbinger for things to come. According to National Geographic News, a new study has found that 30 percent of the world's population is currently exposed to potentially deadly heat for 20 days per year or more. Climate change is exacerbating extreme heat around the globe and without major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, up to three in four people will face the threat of dying from heat by 2100. #Paris #France #Europe #heat #heatwave #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #globalwarming #pool #swimmingpool

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange Men from the Beja tribal group water their camels in the town of Hamesh Koreb in Eastern Sudan. The area was the stronghold of the Eastern Front, a rebel group who were allied with Southern forces against the government in Khartoum during the country's long civil war. The remote and barren region along the border with Eritrea has no public services and suffers from isolation, drought and the effects of climate change. Climate change affects the frequency and intensity of rainfall in East Africa. Longer and hotter periods of drought destroy harvests and livestock while intense, heavy rains create rapid runoffs. These extremes between desertification and flash flooding destroy fertile topsoils and arable land, increasing food insecurity and emigration.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange Men from a village in Mali walk across a small dam that was built to help retain rain water. Global warming and climate change have caused prolonged drought and erratic rainy seasons across the Sahel in recent years, contributing to food insecurity, poverty and human migration throughout the region. One of the problems with the disrupted cycles of rainy and dry seasons is that when the rains do fall, the water rapidly runs off the parched landscape and very little is retained for crops or absorbed into the water table. Improved water management systems such as dams help retain rain waters, increase seepage into the water table, improve agricultural yields and extend the planting season, allowing rural communities to better adopt to the nefarious effects of climate change.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange A woman builds a shelter in a camp for people displaced by drought and famine in the Ogadan region of southern Ethiopia. The Horn of Africa is once again being hit by drought. The current drought is the latest in a long line of climate change related events to strike the region and is projected to become the worst in decades. Climate change is producing a cruel cycle of repeated droughts despite local efforts to reduce the worst consequences. Short term approaches to mitigate drought such as food distribution and long-term approaches such as planting drought tolerant crop varieties can help those affected, but if the root causes of climate change are not addressed, the cycles of drought and famine will continue to worsen.
