Climate Change, Bob Marley and Mali


Two boys at Bamako, Mali.


Sali Samake, 45, lives in Tamale, near the capital city Bamako. She is a very important person in the village because only she knows how to use a rain-measuring instrument. The villagers depend on her to plan their harvest.


She calls herself a self-taught meteorologist. Mali, one of the poorest countries in Africa, is now one of the worst hit by climate change. Farmers are clueless about rainfall. Monsoon comes and goes by its own will.


Children at Segou town.



Bob Marley—one of Africa's best exports till date, though technically a Jamaican.
