Tigray: Then and Now Leaders in Action - Arjan de Haan 2 days ago   10:12

Salim Amin, son of legendary Kenyan videographer Mo Amin, ventures to Tigray Ethiopia -- the place hardest hit by the 1984 famine; the place his dad captured his most iconic footage; and the place that has since been the site of smart, long term investments by governments, donors, and local communities. Drought is still a fact of life in Tigray - but famine is not. These programs have built resilience to drought and put communities on a path out of poverty. Salim meets locals who survived the 1984 drought, but are now successful farmers utilizing better techniques and infrastructure. Tigray is living proof of what long term agricultural programs can accomplish and show that famine does not have to be an inevitability.
