November 26, 2020 - La Petite Raon, Vosges, France. Eastern France is known for its long and difficult recent history with scared lands due to intense battles fought both in WWI and WWII. Today, the region has been largely abandonned by successive governments, creating intense desertification and drug use. With the arrival of Covid-19 into the mix, the region has declined further, closing more shops and businesses. (Photo by Jonathan Alpeyrie)

The small Muslim province of Ningxia is one of the places hit hardly by climate change, surrounded by two expanding deserts which the UN have already declared “unfit for human habitation”. Here, China has launched one of its largest operations to mitigate the effects of climate change; the worlds largest planned eco-migration, relocating up to half a million of its poorest peasant farmers, goat herders and their families from small rural villages of cave homes, to newly built urban centers, irrigated by the yellow river.

The small Muslim province of Ningxia is one of hardest hit places in the world by climate change – surrounded by two expanding deserts which look set to claim land the UN has already declared “unfit for human habitation”. Here, China has launched one of its largest operations to mitigate the effects of climate change – the worlds largest planned eco-migration, relocating up to half a million of its poorest peasant farmers, goat herders and their families from small rural villages living in cave homes, to newly built urban centres, irrigated by the yellow river.
