"Droughts really are changing the planet, around us. They are one of the worst impacts that we will see in terms of the human impacts of climate change," said Louise Baker, the UNCCD External Relations, Policy and Advocacy Chief at a film screening event, "When the Skies Ran Dry", on 7 December 2019.
The event was part of the Climate Change Action Hub programme being held on the margins of the UN Change Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid, Spain. After screening of the documentary film, "When the Skies Run Dry", Baker and Patrick Augenstein, the producer of the film, discussed with audience impacts of drought on livelihoods and ecosystems. Creating opportunities for showing "win-win" evidence of ecosystem restoration and development was among the dialogue with the audience.
