THE MAN WHO STOPPED THE DESERT
A farmer named Yacouba Sawadogo struggles to maintain his livelihood in the increasingly harsh land of northern Burkina Faso (Sahel region) that has suffered from desertification as over-farming, overgrazing, and overpopulation resulted in heavy soil erosion and drying. Yacouba Sawadogo has worked for more than 30 years spread by reviving an ancient farming technique called zai. Zai is a very simple and low-cost method, involving using a shovel or axe to break up the ground and dig small holes, which are then filled with compost and planted with seeds of trees, millet, or sorghum.
