More Challenges For Antigua As Drought Continues

Climate change has brought with it many challenges for the people of Antigua and Barbuda.

Residents here have been building dams and ponds for centuries, harvesting rainwater to irrigate crops and provide drinking water for their livestock.

But for more than two years the island’s main reservoir, the Potswork Dam, has been dry.

With the persistent drought showing no signs of letting up, islanders have been warned to brace for further challenges over the coming months.
