Ghana - Fuveme - A villager carries the roof of his house on his shoulder as the high tide has started and the waves are quickly entering the village and destroying houses on its way.<br />

Nestled between the ocean and the Volta river estuary, the village of Fuvemeh has seen its territory reduced from several kilometers to few hundred meters. Nowadays, the villages sits on a narrow strip of land which separates the coastline from the adjacent lagoon. Haunted by coastal erosion, its 1,000 inhabitants have literally nowhere to move.
