Experts Say Climate Change Drives Migration in Sub-Saharan Africa

The effects of climate change are increasingly driving people in sub-Saharan Africa to migrate in search of better living conditions, according to experts. First, soil quality breaks down. Then people produce less food and poverty deepens. This leads to social tensions and forces people to move - some to urban areas, some to other countries. People in the region will likely have an increasingly tough time feeding themselves as climate change will continue to fuel famine in sub-Saharan Africa.
