Burma’s second largest lake is experiencing a change in climate and an increase in pollution.

Locals living on Inle Lake in Shan State say the rise in severe droughts combined with deforestation in the area are contributing to the deterioration of the lake.

Farmers and artisans are worried about their future and are calling for better conservation of the lake.
