Afriscout app launched

* Ethiopian herder Buchu Boru has to walk many kilometres – even across the border with Kenya – in search of pasture for his animals with no guarantee he will find it. ‘Somebody tells you by word of mouth that there is pasture,’ he said. But next time the rains fail - an increasingly common problem in northern Kenya – he hopes a new mobile phone app will help him move his livestock to fodder without too much cost or waste of time. The Afriscout app uses satellite images to identify where there is grass and surface water.
