Djibouti's desert gardens 2012
12/10/2012: In Djibouti, temperatures are perennially high, rainfall is rare, and the earth is covered with indignant volcanic rock. The last time Djibouti received 'normal' rainfall was in 2006. Yet farming is part of the home-grown solutions to the rising food scarcity in the rural areas.

The Commission is investing over €700,000 in Djibouti through Disaster Risk Reduction programme.
