Along the Southern boundary of the Sahara desert, a strong wind, known as haboob, wreaks havoc on communities, causing sand and dust storms. With frequent droughts, high rainfall variability and an economy heavily dependent on natural resources, Sudan is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate variability and climate change.
Powerful pieces of visual artwork, such as this, showcase the dangerous realities of shifting weather patterns and encourage all of us to enact positive, eco-friendly choices in our lives.
