Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Italy
Hassan Adile is no stranger to drought. As one of 12 million pastoralists in Ethiopia, he travels great distances to find grazing land and water for his livestock. Now he has a new role. He has recently been trained to watch for warning signs of drought. Supported by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), it is hoped that such investments will help avert a future humanitarian crisis like the current drought in the Horn of Africa.
