I took this photo on a road trip across the desert of the Northern drylands of Kenya in September of 2016. We were looking for pastoralists who have to travel longer distances (sometimes taking months) in search of water for their animals, so as to tell their stories through radio, of how longer droughts and increased temperatures have affected their lives and livelihood. While projections show that most parts of Africa will reach the 1.5 degree warmer limit by 2023 - just 2 years from now - some parts of the region are already experiencing temperature increases of 2.5 degrees.
