THE STORY:

The government has declared a state of emergency in 11 regions due to water shortages, forest fires and coastal erosion.
Fifteen children from indigenous communities have died in the northern state of La Guajira this year due to extreme drought and unsanitary conditions, local media reported on Friday.
The Superintendent of Health estimates that the figure of 15 deaths may be under the actual total, owing to the fact that communities will often bury their children on their land without reporting the death.
Last year, 23 children died from causes associated with thirst and disease (Colombia report)
