Ethiopia farmer resettle 2011 8 1

Ethiopian farmers harvesting corn cobs at Loke, about 215 miles south of the capital Addis Ababa, where massive expanses of land that were once lush with healthy maize stalks are now replaced with burnt out twigs even though rains had recently flushed the sun-blasted district. The government is trying to cope with climate change by resettling farmers near rivers and lakes.
