In this photo taken Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, women walk on farmlands that was destroyed by high salt content due to rising sea levels in Saloum Delta, Diamniadio Island in Senegal. Thousands of people on these tiny islands and villages in this part of West Africa are living on the frontline of climate change. Not only are water levels here now higher than they used to be, droughts and erratic rain falls lead to floods that carve through the white-shell-lined alleyways, and increased salt levels are poisoning the fresh waters, land and agriculture.
