Water is life - and when it's gone, the thirst comes.
Times with less water, or droughts, have always been a natural part of weather around the planet. But climate change has been linked with more frequent, more severe and longer dry spells. Especially in more arid regions of the developing world, drought often causes crop losses or lower yields, which threatens food security there. Drought is also increasingly becoming a problem for hydropower, or generation of electricity with water. In addition, drought is linked with stronger and more intense wildfire, and even with political instability.
This summer, parts of Turkey suffered drought and fire - and Istanbul was hit by its biggest rainstorm in 32 years. The last two winters saw the typically mild city buried in snow. With crazy weather becoming the new normal, how is the Turkish capital preparing for climate change?
Record temperatures in Italy this summer are expected to make 2017 an exceptional year for quality wine. But while wine producers might be grateful for the blazing sun and lack of rain, they're still facing a threat to their harvests: grape-guzzling wild boars.
