The Human Chain
un film di Paolo Barberi e Riccardo Russo
In an average years in the Sahel region of West Africa,
226.000 children die because of malnutrition or related problems.
These rates of infant mortality, among the highest in the world,
are caused by extreme poverty, rapid population growth and climate change.
Three major droughts have hit the Sahel in the last seven years,
each one leading to a failed harvest
and a further deepening of poverty of the region’s poorest people.
Finding new ways to address the humanitarian impacts
of climate change on the world’s poorest people
is one of the most pressing issues of our time.
Innovations in getting the right type of aid to the right people
at the right time are gaining pace and political support.
Remembering one truth is essential to maintain this momentum;
Hunger is the world’s greatest solvable problem.
