Climate change: Drought cuts Victoria Falls to lowest level in 25 years

The president of Zambia Edgar Lungu has warned of the risk of losing natural wonders like the Victoria Falls if action is not taken soon on climate change.

Edgar says the rapid change in climate is having a devastating effect and the impact is being felt most of all in developing countries such as Zambia.

Mr Edgar said he believes there is still hope, but only if rich countries do more to mitigate the results of global warming and help less well-off nations cope.

Drought has reduced the water levels of one of the world’s natural wonders, Victoria falls to its lowest level in about 25 years.

The Kariba Dam, the world’s largest reservoir which straddles the Zambezi River upstream of the falls is down to a quarter of its original capacity.
