Description

Full title: The Kamburu Story: A community-led response to climate change

This video shows the area in Kenya where tea is a cash crop and where it dominates the landscape. Crops depleted and market prices fluctuate which makes the community very vulnerable.
50 years ago the indigenous crops were replaced by the tea plantations. As the households grow less food for their oww use, farmers completely rely on the cash they make from tea. Food security has become a perennial problem for the community.
Training has been given by ICE through discussing problems and local solutions in order to let the community take control of their own food security.
