The impact of deglaciation on farming and ranching in Cusco (video)

The Movimiento Ciudadano frente al Cambio Climático (MOCICC), based in the Jesús María district of Lima, pursues an array of national and regional strategies to raise awareness and mitigate the impacts of climate change in Peru. A video library on its website offers powerful testimonies describing the urgency of Peru's climate challenges, including its rapidly disappearing water sources (fuentes de agua).

Take a look at this interview with a Quechuan farmer and rancher from Ocongate, Cusco, situated near Peru's tropical ice, the liquifying frontier of the country's future.
