Summary
The Sahel has long been prone to cycles of drought, but those of the 20th century were especially severe, devastating the land and the lives of the people living there. This program spotlights the efforts of aid agency director Mathieu Ouedraogo to regreen the territory by teaching farmers in Burkina Faso traditional conservation methods. The result? "It's like a miracle," he says of an anti-flooding technique successfully employed by the villagers. The video also touches on the life-changing benefits to Tuareg herders of a tree-planting program in Mali and on considerations of the Kyoto Protocol's allotment of funds to such projects.
