People prepare mud bricks to build a hut at the Shawqaba camp for internally displaced people who were forced to leave their villages by the war in Yemen's northwestern province of Hajjah March 12, 2016. In northwest Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, about 400 families uprooted by the war have been stuck in the Shawqaba camp in Hajjah province for the past year. Residents live in poorly built huts that protect them neither from summer heat nor winter cold in a camp that lacks the most basic services.

Children play in front of a mud house near an unreserved forest in the village of Igbatoro, southwest Nigeria, August 28, 2014. Wood, a form of biomass, is the sole source of energy for hundreds of millions of Africans who lack access to modern sources of power, and logging, both legal and illegal, remains a lucrative business that has contributed to the rapid shrinking of Africa?s rainforests and woodlands. Nigeria lost just over 2 million hectares of forest annually between 2005-2010 driven by agricultural expansion, logging and infrastructure development, according to U.N. data. It is also among the biggest users of solid fuel for cooking, with over 120 million Nigerians relying on firewood and charcoal for their cooking needs, according to the International Energy Agency.

A Roma child plays in the attic of a house in a slum in Tiszavasvari, east of Budapest September 26, 2014. Tiszavasvari, a town of 13,000, is by far the largest Jobbik-controlled municipality. Hungary's far-right Jobbik party is on track to take over dozens of city halls in a municipal election on October 12, 2014, handing it new powers that, critics say, it will use to persecute ethnic minorities. But the experience in Tiszavasvari is that even the most hardline agenda ends up running aground in the swamp of budget shortfalls, petty squabbles and failed schemes that make up local politics in Hungary. For the town's Roma, many of whom live in a slum of mud huts where half-naked children play in a trash-strewn ditch, the budget shortfall meant at least they did not have to add harassment by a far-right militia to their list of problems.

John Dimo, a traditional witch-doctor, walks out of his mud-hut before performing an ancient rite with mystical artifacts to predict the outcome of the U.S. elections in Kogelo village, Nyangoma Kogelo, 430 km (367 miles) west of Kenya's capital Nairobi, November 5, 2012. Kogelo is the ancestral home of U.S. President Barack Obama. Dimo, about 115-years-old, says he knew Obama's father who was buried in the village in 1982. The former army officer says he inherited his trade as a witch-doctor from his father in 1962 and is certain his rite will help favour Obama in the U.S. elections. Four years ago, Kogelo, and Africa in general, celebrated with noisy gusto when Obama, whose father came from the scattered hamlet of tin-roofed homes, became the first African-American to be elected president of the United States. Looking across the Atlantic to the November 6 presidential election, the continent is cooler now towards the "son of Africa" who is seeking a second term. There are questions too whether his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, will have more to offer to sub-Saharan Africa if he wins the White House.

John Dimo, a traditional witch-doctor, sits outside his mud-hut before performing an ancient rite with mystical artifacts to predict the outcome of the U.S. elections in Kogelo village, Nyangoma Kogelo, 430 km (367 miles) west of Kenya's capital Nairobi, November 5, 2012. Kogelo is the ancestral home of U.S. President Barack Obama. Dimo, about 115-years-old, says he knew Obama's father who was buried in the village in 1982. The former army officer says he inherited his trade as a witch-doctor from his father in 1962 and is certain his rite will help favour Obama in the U.S. elections. Four years ago, Kogelo, and Africa in general, celebrated with noisy gusto when Obama, whose father came from the scattered hamlet of tin-roofed homes, became the first African-American to be elected president of the United States.

Indigenous Guna students disembark on one of the islands at the Comarca of Kuna Yala September 4, 2012. Every rainy season, the Guna people living on the Panamanian white sand archipelago of San Blas brace themselves for waves gushing into their tiny mud-floor huts. Rising ocean levels caused by global warming and decades of coral reef destruction have combined with seasonal rains to submerge the Caribbean islands for days on end. Once rare, flooding is now so menacing that the Guna have agreed to abandon ancestral lands for an area within their semi-autonomous territory on the east coast of the mainland.
