Nigeria's vital Lake Chad left out to dry

What was once one of the largest water reservoirs in Africa runs risk of drying up by end of century.

    Once counted as the largest water reservoirs in Africa, Nigeria's Lake Chad is rapidly shrinking due to excessive use and climate change. 

    The lake supplies water to four different countries, but it could dry up by the end of the century.
     
    Meanwhile, efforts to solve the problem and replenish the lake's water are stuck in the pipeline.
