The ocean is rising at the mouth of the Casamance river. It now threatens to flood the island of Carabane... A direct consequence and spectacular illustration of global warming's impact.

The banks are being worn down by the waves, constructions are collapsing, trees are falling and underground water is becoming increasingly saline. Well water is now brackish and harvests are becoming worse and worse.
During the last three years, this dramatic trend brought a country that does not have the means to defend itself from the elements to its knees. The locals cannot build dikes or plant vegetal walls to slow down and stop the phenomenon.
