An entire country becomes uninhabitable for the first time

Date: May 31, 2023 Time: 22:34:03

The war in South Sudan has died down, but living in the country can become completely unbearable due to climate change.


According to scientists, climate change in South Sudan in the coming years could make this country almost uninhabitable.

Previously, in this African region, the rains fell almost once a century, but this was enough to maintain a certain biological cycle of many animals and plants. Now the ground is saturated with moisture after frequent rains, as well as as a result of flooding from the White Nile and the strongest floods in the last half century.

The population of the region is about a million people, and already about 800,000 of them already live in refugee camps, because the climate in their usual places is changing dramatically: due to floods, it is impossible to plant crops, raise livestock and build houses. . Furthermore, living conditions are changing on South Sudan’s Sudd Plain, the country’s main breadbasket. Now Sudd is the largest swamp in the world, an area larger than Estonia or twice the size of Belgium.
