Turkana Tribe's Way Of Life Is Threatened By The Effects Of Climate Change

LODWAR, KENYA - NOVEMBER 09: A young boy from the remote Turkana tribe in Northern Kenya stands on a dried up river bed on November 9, 2009 near Lodwar, Kenya. Over 23 million people across East Africa are facing a critical shortage of water and food, a situation made worse by climate change. The traditional nomadic life of the pastoralist is coming under increasing pressure in northern Kenya from repeated droughts and political marginalisation. As a result, communities are forced to settle near the remaining water sources, overburdening the scarce reserves. Oxfam are responding to this crisis with a programme of water and food aid, distributed through relief centres in the region. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
