“The source of life, that is who I am!” The constantly shrinking Lake Chad itself takes stock: Its life-giving power is diminishing, its destination as an oasis is getting lost, inexorably. Since the 1960s the interior lake has lost more than 90 percent of its surface. This drastic decline, triggered by climate change, has devastating consequences for millions of people.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann
