Climate change has been identified as a risk factor for human rights and is a drama that is pushing many ethnicities to the brink of an abyss and they risk disappearing forever. The connection between climate change and human rights is paying increasing attention to the unequal effects that are occurring in various areas of the world. Countries with tropical and subtropical climates, such as Africa, are expected to be the most affected and devastated.Thousands of dead animals emerge from the arid sands of what were once pastures and rivers. Turkana County, Kenya, is a tangible example.
