Sri Lanka’s worst drought in 40 years leaves villagers hungry and struggling for work
‘There is no work. Everyone, big or small, has lost out to the drought.’

The worst affected areas are the North Western, North Central, Northern and South Eastern Provinces that rely heavily on agriculture. The UN Office in Colombo said that affected households were in some cases limiting their food intake, which was hampering people’s day-to-day lives.

Eating their seed
Gunathileka, who hails from the North Western Province, said his family was now eating some of the rice that he had put away to use as seed for the next growing season..... ... g-for-work

GW @ 410 ppm CO2 what happens @ 500 ppm ?
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
