A fulani shepherd pauses to reflect while his livestock drink from a water point in Northern Mali. This region in Northern Mali is among others in 2011-2012 that are impacted by a Sahel-wide drought. Herders are especially vulnerable to the shocks, which can result in the loss of many livestock and force herders to migrate far.

Location: Rural Segou, Mali
