"Desertification is a major problem around the world, not least in the
Sahel region (which runs from the southern belt of the Sahara to the
Sudanian savanna below) where some of the world’s poorest communities
reside. Despite the Global North being the most significant contributors
to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, it is people like those
living in the Sahel who are paying the price.
The Sahel community are on the frontlines of the climate crisis, dealing
with persistent droughts, famines, and rapidly depleting natural
resources on an ongoing basis. As a result, millions of people across
the region, from Senegal to Djibouti, are being left to handle the
severe repercussions of the climate emergency without much help.
This is where the Great Green Wall comes in, a project that could save
an entire region from ecological collapse."
