How Climate Change is Changing The Nile River & Agriculture in Africa

The Guardian in London has published a 15 minute online video entitled "Death of the Nile?" by Andy Johnstone.  It reviews how climate change is shrinking the river.  The water level is critical to the lives of Africans in Uganda, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia. 

The film "follows the course of the Nile to discover how climate change is already affecting the river's farming communities."

It includes a look at how Ethiopia coffee growing is being impacted by the change in water.  It also looks at changes in village life and fishing.

To see the film see here: Johnstone, Andy.  Death of the Nile? The Guardian, London, 15 January 2010.
