A Flooded Waterway

This picture was taken by Dr. Obinna Ebirim in Agwara Local Government in Niger State. Obinna is a research associate who traveled to Agwara for a training for rural health workers on immunization. To get to his destination, he had to travel to Zamari in Kebbi State and use a canoe to cross into Agwara because what was originally a small waterway had become flooded and impassable. Obinna argues that the photo shows one of the most obvious effects of climate change, where wet areas get wetter and dry places get drier.
