Camelid Series | Adopting camels and improving nutrition and livelihoods, Samburu, Kenya.

20/02/2024 -

Climate change, biodiversity loss, and malnutrition are pressing global challenges, but many unsung heroes are working tirelessly to address these issues in their communities. Their stories are often unheard of, but their impact is real. 

In celebration of the International Year of Camelids 2024, this video is part of a collaboration with camelid-keeping communities from around the world. Local heroes from these communities have created their own video stories about how they are fighting climate change, biodiversity loss, and malnutrition.

This video presents the multiple benefits that the adoption of dromedary camels brought, for over 25 years, in Samburu. With the technical support of PEAR Innovations to women’s groups, dromedary camels were identified as a climate-resilient solution to grant food security and nutrition and create livelihood opportunities.
