Poverty over: climate change


Severe drought in August 2009 left pastoralist communities in north east Kenya on the verge of catastrophe.

Christian Aid's partner Northern Aid is working with the poorest communities in northern Kenya to monitor water levels and protect precious water supplies for people and their livestock.
