Circle of Blue ---

Circle of Blue sent a team of journalists to Inner Mongolia, China to report from the frontlines of the freshwater crisis, where desertification marches inexorably toward Beijing. See this initial reporter's notebook from Circle of Blue producer Eric Daigh. It is part of the multi-media Reign of Sand series from Inner Mongolia, including more videos, photographs, long-form articles and informational graphics that Circle of Blue releases at the start of the year.
