"Act early before droughts become an emergency" | Guyo Roba on the Jameel Observatory for CNN

Guyo Malicha Roba, head of the Jameel Observatory for Food Security Early Action, speaks to CNN Connecting Africa's Eleni Giokos about the role that data can play in tackling the threat of famine and drought in the Horn of Africa, especially among pastoralists in the drylands.

Across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, especially among traditional herders whose cattle is hit hard by changes in the climate, the Jameel Observatory is harnessing data and technology to provide early warnings for early action.
