CCAFS Assists East African Pastoralists to Record Their Climate Reality

CCAFS18 October 2012: Sharing their experiences on adapting to seasonal and annual climatic variability, East African pastoralists have been trained to develop short videos on climate change and other aspects of their lives through the "Pastoralist Transformations to Resilient Futures: Understanding Climate from the Ground Up" project.

The project is funded in part by the Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security Program (CCAFS) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). The Maasai filmmakers work was shared at local meetings, and will be adapted into a collaborative film that will present the variety of views of stakeholders in the East African drylands. Films made by the Masaai pastoralists can be viewed on the CCAFS  blog. [CCAFS Press Release]
