Kenya: Growing with the flow

Farmers in Kenya

Thousands of poor farmers living on the slopes of East Mount Kenya depend on seasonal rains to water their crops.

The water situation in that area of the country has also been affected by decades of excessive logging which reduced forest cover and slowed water flow.

But now, a pilot project, supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), is helping to keep water flowing.

One of the farmers benefiting from this is Christine Mugure Munene, as we hear in this report by James Heer of IFAD in Kenya.
