Broader horizons

Dry, empty and hostile to life: the desert is etched in our collective imagination. But this unique landscape is often not what we expect:

The thirsty metropolis
Why the Peruvian capital Lima is slowly running out of water

Mail from Tataouine
What is it like to live and work in the middle of a desert? Eight people report on everyday life in the emptiness

Threatened paradise

You’ll find this and much more in our new issue!
