Land is Life in South Africa
Putting food on the table can be a challenge for many people and families around the world. That is also true in South Africa, where the Climate Conference, COP17, is being held.
For the women of the Western Cape in South Africa, the lack of secure employment and access to land, as well as the impacts of climate change, are making feeding their families increasingly difficult.
To highlight these difficulties, Oxfam has launched a photo exhibition in Durban where local women farmers show the impact of climate change in their own communities. Let's hope the images inspire negotiators inside the conference centre.
