Climate change threatens end of trail for Niger's nomadic herders

Source(s):  France 24


The annual migration of the nomadic Fulani community -- also called Peuls -- is a vast caravan of herder folk that tails back to neighbouring Nigeria.


Nomadic herders are among the world's most exposed communities when it comes to the impact of climate change.


Niger, one of the world's poorest countries, depends on farming, particularly herding, to provide a livelihood for 80 percent of its population.


In addition to its vulnerability to climate change, the country is on the frontline of desertification -- the equivalent of around 150,000 football pitches is lost each year.
