The race to adapt
1 July 2014 (IRIN ), Momina Ali is a teenager in one of the toughest and hottest places on earth - Ethiopia’s Afar region where average annual temperatures hover around 35 degrees Celsius.

In future the chances are that Momina’s treks for water could take even longer, depending on how rising temperatures affect the rains around her village and hence its water table.

A fresh start for climate change refugees
