Unyielding Floods - Facing the Climate Crisis

A photo exhibition by Action Against Hunger about the consequences of the climate crisis in South Sudan. With photos by Peter Caton.

South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world. Ongoing conflicts deprive millions of people of a safe home. The consequences of climate change aggravate the humanitarian situation immensely: Since 2020, massive floods have been destroying the livelihoods of millions of people and caused a severe hunger crisis in many regions of the country. During three years, photographer Peter Caton has regularly visited the particularly affected parishes Old Fangak and Paguir and impressively documented the will to survive of the inhabitants. Destroyed crops, flooded villages, cut off roads – Caton’s pictures show, how extremely the consequences of climate change are already manifesting in the region. The images vividly convey how the people who have contributed the least to the climate crisis are struggling the most with its consequences. The exhibition shows destruction and sorrow, but also solutions and hope. Action Against Hunger’s rice project helps farmers in Paguir develop new methods to grow crops on flooded soil – and feed their families again.
