Nyando is an agricultural community near Lake Victoria, Kenya, where most households are both headed by women and food insecure. To combat frequent drought, women farmers like Catherine Akinyi, the chairwoman of Obinju Smart Farm Group, are employing sustainable agricultural practices and climate-smart interventions to improve their livelihoods. Now, female farmers are accessing improved crop varieties, creating greenhouses resistant to drought and flooding, raising livestock in a sustainable manner and starting small businesses.
