Moving photos

Hi there,

This week, we’re sharing some powerful images made by our storytellers. These photographs reveal the raw reality of how people are struggling with the impact of climate change around the world.

Water is the primary medium through which we will feel the effects of climate change. Improved water management, monitoring and forecasting are needed in the face of a looming global water crisis, the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and partners said in a report published on 5 October.

Nextblue aims to inspire change from political leaders, decision makers, and the general public. Our storytellers spark debate and they show a personal view of our ever-changing planet.
