Vendors laugh in the midday heat in a traditional market

Traditional markets are the lifeblood of communities across the world. Every part of the food value chain, from farm to fork, has dramatic impacts on our climate and needs to be at the forefront of any climate discussion. Here, some vendors and friends share a joke in the midday heat of Hawassa, Ethiopia.
