Our researcher, Klaudia Tóth said on Kossuth Radio that in recent years living conditions in the most fragile areas of Africa have dramatically deteriorated, climate change and overgrazing are pushing the borders of the Sahara further southward each year. Even though desertification could be reversed, even basic services are no longer provided in many countries due to the lack of central management, Islamist radicalism, terrorism, corruption and population growth. The consequences of this can already be felt in Italy; millions of Africans are dreaming of going to the rich North, but the route to Germany and Sweden runs through the Italian Peninsula, which in now full. If we fail to help Africans, millions more could leave for Europe.
