Pastoralist Voices on Climate Change, directed by Joana Roque de Pinho, Lindsay Simpson and Nicolas Tapia

East African pastoralists have historically coped with seasonal and annual climatic variability. However, as climatic changes are intensifying in the region, their livestock-dependent livelihoods are ever more vulnerable to increasingly frequent droughts and other extreme events.

Pastoralist Voices on Climate Change illustrates the challenges that pastoralists face in a changing climate. It shows how dialogue between scientists, policy-makers, civil society and pastoralists in Kenya have helped the Masai community deal with climate change.

The film also has the Masai people talking about how they learnt to shoot videos to describe their experiences with climate change.
