Mara River Water Organisation
Joseph Kones is a farmer in Bomet on the Mau escarpment, a principle water catchment in Kenya’s Rift Valley. Over the last 20 years, he has seen gradual change in the climate. According to Joseph, rising temperatures have encouraged the proliferation of malaria-spreading mosquitoes. Rainfall has also become unpredictable.
He aims to save the Mara River from drying out due to changes in climate and also seek to help farmers to regain fertile and moist soil. He sees skills in adapting to climate change as essential for the future survival of our community.
