FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Climate change hits Turkey: Ankara seeks to adapt its agricultural policies • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

After a summer of devastating forest fires and flooding, Turkey has become the last G20 country to ratify the Paris Agreement. Although it’s among the world’s biggest economies, Turkey wants UN climate officials to reclassify it as a developing country. That way, it would gain access to funding that could help Ankara adapt its inefficient farming methods. Our correspondents Shona Bhattacharyya, Ludovic de Foucaud and Hussein Asad report from Central Anatolia, where the country’s second-biggest lake – Tuz Gölü or Salt Lake – is drying up.
