Small farmers south of the Sahara are increasingly seeing their harvests devastated by droughts and flash floods. In Ethiopia, some 80 percent of the population is affected. A German-Israeli project aims to ease farming and agriculture in the region. It's sharing sustainable farming know-how and providing technical support, with engineers training not only farmers but also staff from the ministry for agriculture. Together, they've set up small-scale irrigation systems in four different locations.
