United Nations published this video item, entitled “The Invisible Crisis: Climate Change Drives Hunger in Southern Madagascar” – below is their description.
Southern Madagascar is experiencing its worst drought in four decades that has left an estimated 1.3 million people food insecure, warns the World Food Programme (WFP). Calling it a tragedy caused by the impact of climate change at its worst, the UN agency says that the Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) level in children under-five in Madagascar has almost doubled over the last four months, to an alarming 16.5 per cent.
