Two Degrees Up: Kenya

The third in the series of the Two Degrees Up climate change photofilms – from Kenya – is now online.

In this story, farmers from the Mount Kenya Region, one of the most fertile and productive areas of Kenya, tell how seasonal rains are becoming more unpredictable and temperatures are rising. Good water management is the key to making these systems more resilient and sustainable, says Andy Jarvis, the CCAFS scientist behind the video. Farmers are using a range of tools and approaches, including agroforestry and homegrown irrigation solutions, to adapt.

The film also takes a troubling look at what the future could hold if current climate trends continue and water becomes ever more scarce.

The film is produced by Neil Palmer and Andy Jarvis at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), in collaboration with researchers at CCAFS, the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), the International Small Group and Tree Planting (TIST) project, and other partners,.
