Climate: Mexico - Reforestation and Water Protection - In the province of Chiapas in Mexico, climate change is bitter reality. Droughts are lasting longer, and rainy seasons getting shorter. But when the rains do come, they can be so heavy that they cause flooding or mudslides that bury entire villages. People on site have to protect themselves. And as farmers, they also have to adapt to climate change. The Nature Conservancy organization is active in the area, promoting long-term measures.
