Climate Change in Niger

Can we protect the poor from climate change?

Niger has suffered military rule and political instability since 1960. The government has offered minimal services to its people. The Sahel region has suffered many droughts. Agaycha Awikguini is a local person in the Niger and has had struggles, “I haven’t harvested anything last year because of the drought." The IPCC was established in 1988 meant to have scientists help out with the climate change issue.
