Thriving in the Drylands

2010-07-10

The drylands of Africa cover over 40% of the continent, including much of the Horn and East Africa. Millions of pastoralists who live in these areas are very poor and face extreme challenges. But with adapted policies, they can overcome the barriers to development and thrive. By offering unique insights into the daily lives of the people of the Dertu Millennium Village in northern Kenya, this film shows the value of innovative development interventions tailored specifically to the drylands.
