Climate change is causing once-mighty rivers to dry up and temperatures to rise to deadly levels in Mexico.

In Rio de Colorado village, the river has not flowed for decades.

This series, Life at 50°C, has been produced by BBC News Arabic.

We’ll be bringing you more films over the coming weeks from around the world about how people in both in the developed and the developing world are adapting and managing with rising global temperatures.
