France sends the army to ensure water to drought-stricken Indian Ocean island of Mayotte

  • France is deploying military forces to address a severe water crisis on the French Indian Ocean territory of Mayotte. The region is experiencing its most severe drought in decades, leading to water shortages and cuts in supply.
  • Mayotte, a territory northwest of Madagascar, is the poorest part of France and has been facing significant migration tensions. The lack of water has worsened the situation, with an increase in diseases like diarrhea and typhoid. Local authorities have ordered water cuts two out of three days, causing residents to protest for access to water.
  • The drought in Mayotte is due to insufficient rainfall, resulting in low water levels in reservoirs that are unable to meet the estimated daily needs of 42,000 cubic meters. Some reservoirs may run dry by the end of September. French military forces, such as the French Foreign Legion and navy, will work alongside local authorities to distribute water supplies to the affected population.
