In Southern Afghanistan, an urgent crisis is brewing. Water scarcity is driving large-scale displacement and migration, threatening to escalate into a global issue. Decades of drought have depleted traditional water sources, pushing communities to rely on unsustainable groundwater extraction. This has led to severe environmental degradation and displacement, with many now considering migration. Addressing this crisis requires comprehensive strategies, effective governance, and international support to mitigate the impact and prevent further displacement. Explore the root causes, current challenges, and potential solutions in Hamzah's detailed analysis of Afghanistan’s climate-induced exodus.
