PBS NewsHour featured an interview with Ely Keita, CARE’s country director in Niger, during a segment about change impacts on the West African country. Keita said he has seen communities abandoned and armed conflicts erupt between farmers and herders all competing for scarcer usable land. The story also highlighted CARE’s work with local farmers through Village Savings and Loan groups to make their fields and crops more drought and flood-resistant.  See the segment here
