Discover Droughtland


Thirsty for adventure? Dare to explore the one-of-a-kind experiences of Droughtland,
the country with dryness of land, but not of spirit.

Life in Droughtland

Rich history, lost culture and nature, dry cuisine, and very few people — all packed into one rainless paradise. Droughtland is a country where severe drought (and the missed actions from its citizens and government to mitigate and prepare for it early) has impacted all aspects of life, pushing its people to live... differently.

In Droughtland, the old meets the new, with nostalgic reminders of how the country used to be before drought in every corner, as well as people living in unique, new ways. That makes it a "must-see" destination for curious souls, and brave (really brave!) hearts. Do you have what it takes to live here?!

Top things to do in Droughtland

A unique visa program for foreign loners

Don’t like people, or feel drained after social gatherings? We feel you. In Droughtland, there’s not many people left, making it a really quiet and deserted place — all perfect elements for recluses.

That’s why our government launched a special visa program for foreign loners. Be the very first person to apply for it!

Life here is… special

Drought has had many impacts on our livelihoods. We call it the “Aqua Finitum Est” lifestyle.

Droughtland takes on UNCCD's COP 15

COP 15 held this year in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire brings together leaders from governments, civil society and the private sector from around the world to drive progress in the future sustainable management of land.

That's why we decided to promote Droughtland in Abidjan, Cote d' Ivore this year with the help of the artist Bana Vincent Deve, so COP 15 attendees and locals can see how drought could impact their countries.
