Planned coal plant blackens the mood in Kenya’s idyllic Lamu | AFP

In the Lamu archipelago, fishermen ply the channels between lush mangrove forests while life in an ancient Swahili town idles at the pace of the donkeys and boats which are the main means of transport.

Tradition meets tech as Kenya’s herders adapt to climate change

For generations, Kenya’s herders would study the sky over the country’s arid north for any sign of rain — some wind here, a wisp of cloud there — to guide their parched livestock to water. But such divination has been rendered hopeless by intensifying droughts. Today, many of them rely on detailed rainfall forecasts received via text message from a Kenyan tech firm, a simple but life-changing resource.
