Greening the Sahel
In 2007, as a partial response to these challenges, eleven African nations situated in the Sahel region signed an unprecedented agreement: the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and the Sahel Initiative (GGWSSI). The plan is to restore ecosystems across the entire African continent from east (Senegal) to west (Djibouti) (more that 7000 km long and 15km wide).
In this video, Deborah Goffner from Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, French governmental agency for fundamental research) presents an overview of the GGWSSI project and how it extends far beyond planting a gigantic "wall of trees".
