Facing the Crisis – Adaption

Orbisa lives with her husband and nine children in Afar, north-east Ethiopia – one of the hottest inhabited places in the world. During the rainy season, Orbisa could collect water from a river just five minutes’ walk from her village. As the dry season has extended due to the changing climate, this river has now dried up and no longer provides for Orbisa and her family. Orbisa and other women from her village now have to travel for hours each night to collect water for their families.
