As the climate continues to change, communities in rural areas are experiencing economic and productive challenges caused by constant adaptations and transformation, specially individual farmers.
A recent report - On the Frontline: Climate Change & Rural Communities - by The Climate Council reveals that climate change is likely to worsen the systemic disadvantages suffered by rural and regional communities, and further widen the gap between rural and urban areas. It also highlights that the increase in extreme weather events is disproportionately affecting those in rural areas, with serious social, health and economic impacts.
With #Photo4Climate hashtag you have showed us how Climate Change is affecting #Rural areas. Daryll Peter Griffith is this week's finalist with a great caption exposing the consequences of extreme warm weather. Congratulations!
