In the northern regions of Ghana, over half of the population live in poverty and rely on farmland for food and income. But the climate crisis is making rainfall unpredictable and drought and floods are becoming more frequent and severe.
Farmers are forced to overuse their land in an attempt to grow enough crops to eat and sell. As a result, soil that was once fertile is no longer able to support life. This means that many people are facing hunger and poverty.
