Climate change brings cultural change
Maasai farmers in Kajiado County to the south of Nairobi, reflect on the changes that have happened to their livelihoods in recent years. In the past they were almost entirely dependent on livestock. Now, while keeping cattle continues to be an important part of their culture, they are also supplementing their food and income by growing crops. They have invested in a range of technologies, including drip irrigation and greenhouses, in order to get maximum yield from small amounts of land. Audrey Wabwire speaks to four farmers and a local extension officer to hear how and why their lives have changed.
