El Niño recovery – Reversing the losses

Dec 2017

Few would believe that less than a year ago, this part of the world was in the grip of an intense drought, driven by one of the strongest El Niño events ever witnessed. More than 60 million people worldwide were rendered food insecure, as large swathes of otherwise productive land, lay barren. The video tells the story of Dolly Dube, a livestock farmer, who recalls how the drought led to severe water scarcity, poor veld quality and limited pasture availability. Many animals died, and those that barely made it, were in terrible condition.
