Melting glaciers threaten the supply of drinking water for millions of people in the Andean region. The small village Khapi in Bolivia, at the foot of Mount Illimani, is one of the places in Latin America most heavily affected by global climate change. Residents fear water shortage in a few years will force them to flee the village. In recent years, more than 40 people have moved away from the small village. Lack of clean water is one of the main reasons why people move. (image by Adrian Øhrn Johansen)
