Kenya close to ending drought crises, says local scientist award winner

30 Aug 2016, TRF

Kenya is on its way to breaking the devastating cycle of drought, poverty and hunger over the next decade. Kenyan scientist Andrew Mude won the 2016 Norman Borlaug Award for Field Research and Application for developing livestock insurance. Over 16,000 Kenyan households have already benefitted - the scheme pays out when rains fail, rather than waiting for animals to die.
