Kenya's livestock farmers are desperately vulnerable to the ravages of drought.

"We have to make sure more people get a slice of the cake. But we also have to grow the cake."

- Andrew Gache Mude, an environmental scientist

As project leader at a research institute, award-winning environmental scientist Andrew Gache Mude works on ways to protect families dependent on livestock farming to earn their living.

These families always suffer badly when environmental disasters strike.

His expertise is called upon by the media internationally. So, is he a good shepherd?
