Moura, Alentejo region, Portugal
Human intervention has changed the farm fields in the Alentejo, the driest region in Portugal, characterised mostly by gentle hills, cork oak trees and cereal plantations. The nearby Alqueva water damn, fed by Guadiana river, created the biggest artificial water reservoir in Europe, much needed for irrigation and drinking water - now hitting the lowest levels due to climate change and less rainfall.

أدت التدخّلات البشريّة إلى حدوث الكثير من التغييرات على الأراضي الزراعيّة في منطقة ألنتيجو التي تعدُّ المنطقة الأكثر جفافاً في البرتغال، والتي تتّسم معظمها بالتلالٍ الصغيرة وأشجار السنديان الفلّينيّ ومزارع الحبوب. وكان سدّ ألكيفا الذي يجمع مياه نهر جواديانا يعدُّ أكبر خزّان مياه اصطناعي في جميع أنحاء أوروبا، لكنّه الآن مهدّدٌ بالجفاف بسبب التغيّر المناخي وتدنّي نسبة الأمطار.
