A VANISHING LAND

Senegal

Climate change severely threaten people’s lives in West Africa.

Stronger storms and rising seas result in coastal erosion and flooding along the coast of Senegal; wiping out homes, roads and buildings that have served as landmarks for generations.

What used to be a home has now disappeared into the sea. Cities along the coast are slowly getting eroded. Their residents have no choice but to move away—a trend that is breaking up communities and changing the social fabric for future generations.
