A handful of fishermen manoeuvring between rushes and sandbars while they fish, increasingly more despairingly, after small fish,
on what previously was deep water with large fish and good catches. Now Lake Chad has shrunk to a tenth of what it was not many decades ago.
In fourty years Lake Chad, once one of the world’s largest lakes, has been reduced to 10% of its original size.
The drought south of the Sahara also leads to continuous crop failures that threaten millions of people.
