Nekarambaya Kamndo runs his hand down the rain gauge, explaining how much rain should fall in a normal year.

"There should be 10mm in it," says the chief engineer of Am Dam, a sandbattered district in eastern Chad. "But last year just 369mm of rain fell in 17 days."

In 2000 596mm fell in 40 days. The consequences, say experts, are devastating.
