Throughout the world, droughts, heat waves and floods are more and more frequent and longer. Sources of drinking water are becoming increasingly scarce, arable land more limited and livestock farming more constrained. Life, in all its forms, is increasingly under threat.
To remedy the media’s invisibility of these climatic phenomena, which are as deadly as spectacular natural disasters, Action Against Hunger invited four photographers to document these chronic threats in four different regions of the world.
Andrew Quilty went in Afghanistan, Ferhat Bouda in Chad, Catalina Martin-Chico in Panama and Cyril Zannettacci in Kenya.
Their images reveal, beyond the figures and studies, the human reality on the ground: individuals, families, and social groups whose daily lives and food security are durably but silently disrupted by climate change.
