Description

In the Central American, “Dry Corridor” extreme weather conditions, caused by climate change, have prompted one of the largest human climate migrations the modern world has ever seen.

Our Latin America Correspondent Guillermo Galdos followed one Guatemalan farmer desperately trying to make the journey of a lifetime - travelling into the US and placing his life in the hands of human smugglers.
