Kenya recorded 15 droughts between 1960 and 2016. The 1970s and 80s were described as decades of drought. Six droughts -40 percent, occurred after 2000—a remarkable increase in the frequency and severity of the drought.

So far, the response to the drought has been reactionary rather than rounded. The Elephant in conversation with Dr Guyo Malicha Roba, an expert on African pastoralism and livestock value chain.
