Kenya's cash-for-climate-change aid

New approach to aid comes out of drought in Kenya's northeast.

    A prolonged drought in Kenya - blamed heavily on climate change - has plunged hundreds of thousands of people into poverty.

    The worst affected are cattle-herders in the country's northeast. Communities that used to be self-sufficient, are now dependent on cash hand-outs from aid groups.

    Mohammed Adow reports on a new approach to aid in the town of Takaba.
