Climate Change Impacts: Prolonged drought worry farmers, government in Zambia

Hamalengo lost an entire hectare of market-ready tomato worthy 15, 000 Zambian Kwacha (about $2500), to a heavy storm and later suffered crop failure in his field due to a prolonged drought that followed three weeks after the storm.
